The impact of the depression will be felt in the interiors of South Karnataka. Places like Bengaluru, Mysuru, Kolar, Mandya, Kodagu, Chikkamagaluru, Hassan, Shivamogga and other parts will also experience rainfall. Similarly, moderate rainfall can be expected at isolated places in the interiors of North Karnataka consisting of Belgaum, Hubballi and Dharwad and neighbouring districts."
