New Delhi, Aug. 31 : The Indian Meteorological Department (IMD) on Wednesday said rainfall is likely to get subsided in places like Delhi, Telangana, and western Uttar Pradesh from September 2 onwards.

Similar situation occurred at Hyderabad as well in which 70mm rainfall was recorded," B.P. Yadav, Director, IMD, said. "The rainfall was expected. Since conditions for monsoon became active and western disturbance occrued and created moisture . The condition led to cyclonic circulation that hovered over Haryana and Telangana which caused rainfall," he added.
