Heavy showers in Northeast India to bring down rainfall deficiency

August 16, 2015 4:49 PM |

Rain in AssamMonsoon surge seems to be gaining strength over Northeast India. All thanks to the axis of the Monsoon trough which is gradually moving north of its original position. For the next 24 to 48 hours, the trough will be passing through the foothills of the Himalayas.

Tomorrow onward, rainfall activity will increase significantly over entire Northeast India.  On August 20, extremely heavy showers are likely over Assam, Meghalaya, Mizoram and Tripura.

Monsoon in Northeast India

Southwest Monsoon performed extremely well in Northeast India during the month of June. By the end of the month, Arunachal Pradesh was rainfall surplus by 27% and Assam & Meghalaya was surplus by 9%.

However, Monsoon went through a subdued phase throughout the month of July in Northeast India. Consequently, Arunachal Pradesh became rain deficit to the tune of 6%, Assam & Meghalaya by 20% and NMMT (Nagaland, Manipur, Mizoram and Tripura) by 25%. Subdued rainfall activity continued in all the Northeast states throughout August as well.

This approaching spell of rainfall will not only bring down cumulative rainfall deficiency figures of the region, but also of the entire country.
