Monsoon 2019 hits Northeast India

The Southwest Monsoon 2019 after a significant delay has finally stepped in Northeast India. The normal onset date is June 1 along with Kerala. However, this time the Monsoon 2019 has been delayed by over a week. From past one-month, moderate rains with few heavy spells have been a constant sight in Northeast India.

Yesterday also, good rains were witnessed in many parts of the northeastern states. Dibrugarh recorded 46 mm of rains, followed by 42 mm in North Lakhimpur. While, Majbat and Silchar witnessed rains to the tune of 26 mm and 15 mm, respectively.

In fact, the weather conditions remain favourable for further progress of Monsoon 2019 into more parts of Northeast India. A Cyclonic Circulation is over the west-central Bay of Bengal and now it would move in north-northeast direction towards Myanmar. Hence, rain activities would pick up more pace in parts of Manipur, Mizoram, Tripura, and Nagaland. With this, Monsoon is most likely to cover all the states of Northeast India during the next 48 hours.

Along with this, good rains are expected to continue over Assam, Meghalaya and Arunachal Pradesh. Snowfall is also a chance in the higher reaches of Arunachal Pradesh and Sikkim.

Despite good rains, East and Northeast India till date is rain deficient by 49%. The normal average rainfall for Northeast India is very high. Till now, the region has recorded 41.8 mm of rains against the normal of 81.4 mm of rains. With rains to increase in the coming days, the normal rainfall value over Northeast India would also go up. As a result, covering the deficiency would become difficult.

These heavy rains might result in water logging, mudslide and landslide. However, for now, the flood-like situation in these states seems to be out of sight. Heavy to extremely heavy rains will be only helpful in bringing down the deficiency levels in northeastern states of the country. The rainfall activity is likely to pick up pace in the coming two to three days.
