Its a welcome change when you get to drive in rain
Looking at the climatic changes due to global warming, I wouldn't be surprised if it starts to rain now.
Bangalore is cloudy today as it was yesterday

I really had no idea that it rained so much. In my part of town there was just a small drizzle, that's it.

That's Bangalore for you. If it becomes hot, then it rains and maintains the beautiful balance in weather. It used to be better, for us old-timers, but, even today, weather is better than most of the cities I have seen.

Experienced some light showers yesterday evening and today morning. It felt really pleasant and I did not feel like coming to office today. I feel sorry for the cars which were full of dust settled on them as a result. Including my wife's zen.

Both cars (Mine & My Wife's) are in a mess after the shower yesterday. It was pretty heavy in the night and weather today is just awesome.

Feel like going on a long drive to the mountains

I've clicked some snaps, will upload it after I go home, forgot to get the data cable :(

Yes it did rain heavily yesterday night and continued to drizzle till the wee hours of today. The weather is just awesome, much much needed for all of us. VTEC_rocks I completely agree with you, hope this weather continues to remain the same till the weekend so that I can hit the road for a long drive.
Attaching a picture I took yesterday.

Bengaluru guys, you are so lucky to have showers in the summer. The temp must have come down good enough. The Mumbaites are not lucky in this regards as its scorching hot with temp around 32 and high humidity levels. Its raining all right in Mumbai but its the sweat down the body. I feel like going to a hill station and staying there till the summer is over but cant since I have to earn my daily bread.

The weather was very pleasant in the morning. But no rains in South Bangalore yet. Temperature have come down considerably. Perfect weather to go for a long drive.

Today's weather was just awesome. Summer never looked so beautiful. Smell of wet mud, wet wood and freshly baked Coffee beans, I just couldn't ask for more.

I stay in JNR and it rained last night really heavily for about 15 mins. Then it rained heavily this morning as well

It's heavenly! I'm absolutely LOVING it!

+1, When I started for home from office, it was just a slight drizzle. I had taken my bike yesterday and by the time I was just a 100 meters from my office, it started pouring. I was fully drenched even before I thought of getting shelter. I liked the drenching though

Absolutely! There was a light drizzle this morning and it was beautiful. The traffic was mad as usual but lovely weather.
