For almost a week now, residents of Bengaluru, including me, woke up to gloomy, cold mornings, a rare sight in the month of May. Even though we caught a glimpse of the sunlight on the morning of May 14, Garden City, already known for its pleasant weather, is witnessing one of the coldest summers in years.

Shimla in Himachal Pradesh, Mussoorie in Uttarakhand, Pahalgam in Jammu and Kashmir were warmer than Bengaluru on May 12. On the same day, the city saw the second coldest day in May in the last 50 years as the maximum temperature was recorded at 23 degrees Celsius. The last time the coldest day was recorded in Bengaluru was on May 14, 1972, when the temperature was 22.2 °C. According to the Indian Meteorological Department, this is a drop of 8-10 degrees compared to the normal temperature in May.

Also, due to Cyclone Asani, rain has become common in the city. The cyclone is causing pleasant weather and rain conditions over North East and South Karnataka, bringing down the temperature.

Bengaluru will remain partly cloudy till May 17, even as Cyclone Asani weakens. According to the Meteorological Department, the minimum temperature may drop to 20 degrees Celsius, while the maximum temperature will be in the range of 31-33 degrees Celsius.

On the other hand, the IMD has predicted that the Southwest Monsoon will hit Kerala on June 1, earlier than expected this time, and will start its journey across India.
