Rain in AssamSeveral parts of East and Northeast India witnessed scattered light to moderate rain on account of fading Western Disturbance prevailing over the region on Friday.

According to Skymet Meteorology Division in India, the system is presently moving across eastern Himalayas, giving rain over parts of eastern Uttar Pradesh, North Bihar, West Bengal, and Assam.

In a span of last 24 hours, Lucknow in eastern Uttar Pradesh recorded 21 mm, Gorakhpur 8 mm and Allahabad 0.2 mm. In Bihar, Gaya received 2 mm of rain, Motihari 1.6 mm and Bhagalpur 0.1 mm.

Meanwhile, Balurghat in West Bengal recorded 20 mm of rain, followed by Kelimpong with 10 mm of rain. Guwahati and Dibrugarh in Assam recorded 20 mm of rain, while Gangtok in Sikkim observed 10 mm of rain.

As per Skymet, the system is expected to move away in the next 24 hours, ceasing rain thereafter.

The region will get a short break of about three days from the rainy spell, after which another Western Disturbance is likely to affect the region by March 3.

Western Disturbances become frequent during winters and are responsible for affecting the weather in the region to a large extent. These systems after approaching the region usually stay for 1-2 days and give short spells of rain. The system is called Western Disturbance due to its movement from west to east.
