Pre-Monsoon rains in parts of Northeast India to continue for another 48 hours

Sikkim Rains 1

Since the last few rains rain and thundershower activities are going over Sikkim, Assam, Arunachal Pradesh, Meghalaya, Nagaland and Manipur. During the last 24 hours, many parts of Northeast India recorded light to moderate rainfall activity.

Rangia recorded 18 mm of rain, followed by Shillong 17 mm, Cherrapunji 16 mm, Goalpara 15 mm, North Lakhimpur 12 mm, Guwahati 8 mm, Imphal and Pasighat 8 mm.

Due to these continuous rain and thundershowers, weather conditions over the northeastern states are currently very humid.

The reason for these weather activities has been attributed to the moving of Western Disturbances across the higher latitudes one after another in quick succession and the presence of a cyclonic circulation over South Assam and adjoining Meghalaya region.

An anti-cyclonic circulation is also persisting over West central Bay of Bengal off Odisha Coast, which is also further providing moisture over the region from Bay of Bengal.

In the wake of all these weather systems, light to moderate rain and thundershowers accompanied with strong gusty winds will continue over many places in Northeast India during the next 36 to 48 hours.

Thereafter, from April 25, weather activities will start decreasing from parts of Assam, Arunachal Pradesh, Meghalaya, Nagaland, Manipur, Mizoram and Tripura.
