Since the last many days, the northeastern states of the country have been receiving violent thunderstorm and intense Pre-Monsoon rains. The intensity of these weather activities was more over Manipur, Mizoram and Tripura as compared to Nagaland, Assam, Meghalaya and Arunachal Pradesh.

These rains have been attributed to the cyclonic circulation which was persisting over Assam, Meghalaya and Manipur region from time to time. Moreover, the anti-cyclone over Bay of Bengal has been feeding moisture continuously over most parts of Northeast India.

Now today as well, we expect good spell of rain and thundershower activities to occur in many parts of Manipur, Mizoram and Tripura. However, Nagaland, Assam, Meghalaya and Arunachal Pradesh will witness weather activities with reduced intensity.

Weather Alert for Nagaland: Spell of rain and thundershowers will occur over Dimapur, Kiphire, Kohima, Longleng, Mokokchung, Mon, Peren, Phek, Tuensang, Wokha and Zunheboto during the next 8 to 12 hours.

Due to the weakening of weather systems and the movement of anti-cyclone southwards, from April 11, entire Northeast India with observe gradual decrease in weather activities. Although isolated rain and thundershowers may still occur in parts.

Another spell of good rains will commence over the northeastern states from April 14. This spell of weather activities will continue for the next two to three days and will be accompanied with strong surface winds and hailstorm activity.

During this time, the anti-cyclone will once again move northwards close to the region and another fresh cyclonic circulation will develop over Assam and adjoining area. In fact, the remnants of Western Disturbance will also reach Northeast India along the foothills of Himalayas.
