Northeast India: Flood alert for Meghalaya, Tripura, Mizoram and parts of Assam

May 31, 2019 10:05 AM |

A cyclonic circulation has developed over Bangladesh and the adjoining areas. This weather system is likely to intensify gradually and may become a well-marked low-pressure area in the next three to four days.

Therefore, now we expect rain intensity to increase over parts of Meghalaya and Tripura. Heavy to extremely heavy rain and thundershower activities are expected over many parts of Northeast India especially parts of Meghalaya, Tripura and Mizoram as well southern districts of Assam.

Moreover, after June 3, a sudden spike will be witnessed in the rain intensity and thereafter, these intense pre-Monsoon rain and thundershower activities will continue till June 7. The upper reaches of Arunachal Pradesh will get scattered snow and freezing rains.

So, during this period, due to intense rain showers, flash floods and isolated incidents of cloud bursts over parts of Northeast India. Eastern parts of Bangladesh will also be witnessing extremely heavy rains for the coming one week or so.

Skymet Weather is issuing flood alert for the northeastern states particularly Assam, Meghalaya and Tripura. Precautions and preparations are advised for all the people living in these areas to avoid any mishappening and avoid disruptions. The government and administration of these states should also be prepared for upcoming flooding rains.

Humid winds will also enhance these heavy rains, as they will continue to feed moisture content over the northeastern states. Along with this, a trough is also extending from East Uttar Pradesh to Manipur across Bihar and West Bengal. Thus, the combination of all these weather conditions will make the situation worse in the coming days.

Simultaneously, during the first week of June, Monsoon will also mark its onset over Northeast India and these ongoing pre-Monsoon weather activities will merge with the Monsoon rains gradually, leading to widespread heavy rains. Thereafter, from June 7, rains over the northeastern states will start decreasing once again.
