Light to moderate intensity rain is being observed in the northeastern parts of the country for the last 24 to 48 hours. These rains have however come to a halt today and dry weather conditions are going to take over the region from March 28 to March 30. .
However, on March 31, good rains and thundershower activities are again expected over the region. These rains will carry on until April 5, and the intensity will peak between April 1 and April 3.
During this period, we expect one or two moderate to heavy spells with lightning strikes and violent thunderstorm. Strong surface winds are also expected over many parts of the northeast region.
The reason for these rains can be attributed to the formation of a Cyclonic Circulation over Assam and Meghalaya. Moreover, an anti-cyclone over North Bay of Bengal will continue to feed moisture over Northeast India. So, these weather systems combined will enhance the rainfall activity in the region.
At present, most of the Northeastern states are running rain deficient. This prolonged rainy spell will surely contribute in improving this deficiency.
After April 5, clear weather will make way over these states yet again.
