Madikeri: Kodagu, a tourists’ paradise, was not so cool this year. Except Mandalpatti, the rest of the regions experience a hot spell this season.
A week ago, Napoklu was blessed with a good shower. Some other villages too had showers as blessings in the middle of scorching heat.
Madikeri, the headquarters of the district, was taken by surprise when sudden rains poured. The atmospheric temperature dipped considerably, after the earlier week saw the highest maximum temperature recorded.
Many citizens shuffled through as rains poured. Some umbrella marts reported brisk business. If the rain did not continue, the temperature might get worse, felt many seniors.
Response from coffee-growers was not immediately available, whether it was good for the crop or the growth.
