After a poor start to pre-Monsoon in March and April, the entire Northeast India is gearing up for rainy days ahead. The place also saw some good rains in the last one week, covering up a little bit for the rain deficiency which had built over for the region in the season so far.
Now, these rains are likely to pick up pace today onward and this prolonged spell is here to stay. These upcoming rains are going to effect over the region for at least a week extending up to the next ten days. These rains will be mainly moderate in category. The second half of the spell would be more intense than the first one.
The reason for this upcoming spell is the flow of southeasterly winds blowing from Bay of Bengal to northeastern states. According to Skymet Weather, a Cyclonic Circulation has formed over Bihar and adjoining region. Another Cyclonic Circulation can be seen over southern parts of Central Bay of Bengal. Both the systems would be infusing moisture over the region.
As per the weathermen, lightning, continuous rains, flooding are some threats that the upcoming spell is going to bring along with. The skies would remain cloudy throughout the spell. The rains will lead to a further reduction of the day temperatures over the area and will be recorded somewhere around the lower 30s or even less.
Now with only a fortnight left for Monsoon, the pre-Monsoon rains are going to pick up. As we head towards the end of the pre-monsoon season and the beginning of Southwest Monsoon nears, the intensity of rain keeps on increasing.
Till now, the maximum rains in the region has been received by Meghalaya and Assam. Now, as well these regions are going to receive the maximum precipitation.
