Earlier this month, Bengaluru saw its rainiest June day ever, logging 111.11 mm on June 2, breaking a 133-year-old record. IMD officials attribute this deluge to a cyclonic circulation over the northeast Bay of Bengal and a low-pressure trough off the Maharashtra-Kerala coasts, which are expected to intensify lower-level winds along the western coast in the next few days, the report added.
