The northeastern states of India have been witnessing moderate to heavy rain and thundershower activities since the last two days. In the last 24 hours from 08:30 am on Sunday, Barapani recorded 26 mm of rain, followed by Shillong 24 mm, Cherrapunji 12 mm, Goalpara 8 mm, Mazbat and Pasighat 6 mm. At present, a cyclonic circulation is seen over Tripura and adjoining area. Along with this, an anti-cyclone persisting over northern parts of Bay of Bengal is continuously feeding moisture over the northeastern states.
Therefore, we expect on and off light to moderate rain and thundershowers with one or two heavy spells to continue over Assam, Arunachal Pradesh, Meghalaya, Nagaland, Manipur, Mizoram and Tripura till April 17. During this period, chances of lightning strike, wind storms and violent thundershowers cannot be ruled out over most parts of Northeast India. Thereafter, the intensity of these weather activities will reduce over most parts of the region. But still few isolated pockets may witness spell of light rain and thundershowers. Recently, wind storm has damaged many houses in southern parts of Nagaland. In fact, during next 24 to 48 hours, similar weather activities are expected in some more parts of Northeast India. Thereafter, gradually as rains will start decreasing such weather activities will also reduce.
Weather alert for Nagaland: Moderate spell of rain and thundershowers accompanied with strong winds will occur over Dimapur, Kiphire, Kohima, Longleng, Mokokchung, Mon, Peren, Phek, Tuensang, Wokha and Zunheboto between April 14 to 16.
