Intermittent rains to continue in Northeast India until May 18

May 14, 2019 4:33 PM |

Pre Monsoon in Northeast India

In this pre-Monsoon season, until now, Assam and Meghalaya have received normal rainfall. In this, Assam is surplus by 6% and Meghalaya is surplus by 13%. While, Nagaland, Manipur and Tripura are rain deficient whereas Mizoram is largely deficient by 77%.

Arunachal Pradesh, Assam and Meghalaya have been witnessing moderate to heavy rains since last many days, while Nagaland, Manipur, Mizoram and Tripura have not received good rains. This is because of a Cyclonic Circulation that persisted over Assam and adjoining areas leading to increase in rain intensity.

Generally, rainfall for northeastern states are very high during pre-Monsoon and Monsoon season. However, continuous good rains are yet to be witnessed Northeast India. According to meteorologists at Skymet, moderate to heavy showers would continue over many parts of Northeast India until May 18. Thereafter, the intensity of rain is expected to weaken. Scattered pre-Monsoon rains would continue leading to comfortable weather conditions over most parts of Northeast India.

Now, we expect rains to increase by the first week of June as the normal onset date of Monsoon in Nagaland, Manipur, Mizoram and Tripura is June 1 along with Kerala. By June 5, Monsoon covers entire Northeast India.

According to weather experts at Skymet, in the month of June, heavy to extremely heavy rains would be a sight in northeastern parts of the country.
