Pre Monsoon Showers in Northeast India

Since the last few days, moderate to heavy showers are being witnessed in the northern districts of Northeast India like Arunachal Pradesh, Assam and Meghalaya. Due to these rains, Assam and Meghalaya which were hugely deficient during the month of April have now become surplus by 2%. While, rain deficiency in Arunachal Pradesh at present stands at 38%. The southern states of Northeast India like Nagaland, Manipur, Mizoram and Tripura are currently deficient by 42% due to lack of any good rainfall activity.

Currently, a Cyclonic Circulation is over Bangladesh and humid winds from the Bay of Bengal are feeding moisture to the region. These unstable weather conditions help in giving rains over Northeast India.

According to meteorologists moderate to heavy rains are expected to continue over Arunachal Pradesh, Assam and Meghalaya. In the coming 24 hours, scattered rains would be seen over Nagaland, Manipur, Mizoram and Tripura as well with lesser intensity

Thus, we can say that good rains are in the offing for Northeast India for at least one week. Thereafter, there can be drop in rainfall activities, but intermittent pre-Monsoon showers would continue until the commencement of Monsoon. The normal onset date of Monsoon in Northeast India is June 1 and by June 5, most parts of the region begin receiving good rain.
