During the past 24 hours, several districts in Arunachal Pradesh, Tripura, Assam and Meghalaya have been witnessing moderate to heavy intensity of rains. While the remaining areas of Northeastern states have been observing moderate spells of rain.
Within the span of 24 hours from 8:30 am on Friday, Passighat recorded heavy rainfall of 60 mm, followed by Agartala at 54 mm, Cherrapunji 48 mm, Goalpara 39.4 mm, Mazbat 33.2 mm, Shillong 29.2 mm, Guwahati 25 mm, Tinsukia 24 mm, Jorhat 23 mm, Kohima 19 mm, Dhubri 17 mm, Golaghat 16 mm, Kailashahar 11.4 mm, Dibrugarh 7.2 mm, Silchar and Lengpui 5 mm and Imphal 4.5 mm.
The reason for such good rains can be attributed to a depression which has been recurved and is presently seen lying over Murshidabad and adjoining areas of Bangladesh. Also, this system is likely to move northeastwards and further is expected to weaken gradually.
