Mysuru: Moderate rainfall (7.5 mm to 35 mm) will continue in city for four more days, said N. Nagendra Babu, Research Associate at Organic Farming and Research Station in Naganahalli.

Speaking to Star of Mysore, Nagendra Babu said that there would be no continuous but intermittent rainfall for four days besides stating that there would be variation in wind speed.

He said that 14.4 mm rainfall was recorded yesterday at the observatory in the Organic Farming and Research Station. Today morning too, the weather was cold and cloudy along with light drizzle which intensified at about 12 noon.

Holiday for schools and colleges: Following heavy rainfall, a day’s holiday has been declared for schools and colleges in H.D. Kote and Periyapatna taluks today.    

Meanwhile, continuous rainfall since two days has disrupted normal life in city. Moderate rainfall which began on Monday afternoon lashed the city continuously throughout the night and continued on Tuesday too.

Thick dark clouds hovered the city resulting in continuous rain and cold weather. While trees were uprooted in Gokulam, Vijayanagar 3rd Stage, Shanthinagar and on Sayyaji Rao Road, opposite MCC, rainwater entered houses in low lying areas of the city.
