Pre-Monsoon rain and strong winds to continue in Northeast India

April 7, 2019 1:51 PM |

The northeastern states of India have been receiving pre-Monsoon rain and thundershower activities for the last many days now. This is not all as we are expecting more showers ahead.

In the last 24 hours from 08:30 am on Saturday, Goalpara in Assam recorded very heavy rain to the tune of 80 mm, followed by Tezpur and Mazbat 27 mm, Siliguri 25 mm, Cherrapunji 14 mm, Agartala 13 mm, Rangia 10 mm, Haflong 9 mm, Silchar 4 mm and Barapani 2 mm.

These weather activities have been attributed to the cyclonic circulation seen over Meghalaya and adjoining Assam region. Another cyclonic circulation is over Gangetic West Bengal and adjoining parts of Jharkhand.

In association with both these weather systems, an anti-cyclone is also persisting over central parts of Bay of Bengal, which is giving warm and moist winds over the northeastern states. Simultaneously, Western Disturbances are also moving one after another across the higher latitudes of the region.

Since no change is expected in the weather systems, light to moderate rain and thundershowers activities accompanied with strong winds will affect in many parts of Assam, Arunachal Pradesh, Meghalaya, Nagaland, Manipur, Mizoram and Tripura.

Spell of heavy showers cannot be ruled out in isolated places. These rains are useful for the paddy crop growing in parts of Northeast India.
