It was a sunny morning as usual and the weather was quite hot till afternoon. However, by evening around 5 pm, thick and dark clouds covered the skies and the city received rainfall. The cloudy atmosphere that prevailed all through the day led to drizzling in some places of Kundapur and Brahmavar.

The sun has been particularly harsh on the city and the temperature touched 35 to 38 degrees Celsius in the city during the past few days.

Due to first shower, the power supply was disrupted as soon as it started raining. The heavy downpour lasted for over 30 minutes.
