Rain in Northeast India

Northeast India is the rainiest pocket during the pre-Monsoon season as well as Monsoon season. In April, the maximum amount of rainfall contribution over Pan India comes from northeastern parts of the country, including all the seven states.

March ended on a deficient note and following similar trend, the rainfall this April has mainly remained on the lower side. Till now, most parts of Northeast India have been observing rainfall deficiency.

Since April 1, all the states of Northeast India i.e. Assam, Arunachal Pradesh, Meghalaya, Manipur, Mizoram and Tripura have observed rain and thundershowers every single day with varied intensities. But still the northeastern states have not managed to overcome their deficiency.

In the last 24 hours from 08:30 am on Sunday, Silchar recorded 18 mm of rain, followed by Tezpur 18 mm, Jorhat 16 mm, Mazbat and Shillong 11 mm, Kailashahar 10 mm, Digha 9 mm, Gangtok and Golaghat 8 mm.

Now on April 8 and 9, the intensity of weather activities over the northeastern states is expected to pick up pace. We can even expect few heavy spells in the southern states like Meghalaya, Mizoram and Tripura. But Assam, Arunachal Pradesh, Manipur and Nagaland will continue to witness light to moderate rain and thundershower activities.

Thereafter, on April 10 and 11, rains will slow down a little and during that time, parts of Northeast India will observe scattered light rains with one or two moderate spells.

Further, from April 12, weather activities will once again pick up pace and during this period Meghalaya and Assam will witness maximum amount of rains as compared to the rest northeastern states.
