In that too, even though Mangaluru city has not experienced heavy rains, it has nonetheless witnessed rain, thunder and lightning since a week during the nights, which has brought down the temperatures ever so slightly.

The rain being experienced currently is the pre-monsoon showers which normally start from April to the end of May. But this time, pre-monsoon showers have reduced considerably and did not begin as it should have from the month of April. Besides, it did not start in the month of May as well. The pre-monsoon rain started only at the end of May and because of this, DK district is already facing a shortage in rainfall by 63%.

Since there was surface storm in the hinterlands of the south, it resulted in the blowing of hot winds. Even though there was rain during the nights, the hot temperatures remain persistent. In comparison to the normal, the present temperature is higher by 3-4 degrees Celsius. The maximum temperature in the district is reaching 37 degree Celsius.
