Northeast Rains

On one hand, almost the entire country is gripped under soaring temperatures while on the other hand, northeastern states of the country are being showered upon with pre-Monsoon rain spells.

Ever since the month started, rain gods have poured on and off pre-Monsoon showers over the ‘seven sister’s states’. Rarely had Northeast India witnessed complete dry spells. The northern parts of Northeast India mainly Assam, Sikkim, and Arunachal Pradesh had witnessed rains in the last 24 hours.

Let’s have a look at the rainfall recorded in parts of northeastern states within a span of 24 hours from 08:30 am on Sunday:


As per Skymet Weather, a trough is extending from West Assam up to South Chhattisgarh across Gangetic West Bengal, Jharkhand, and Odisha. In the wake of this weather system, rains occurred over districts of Arunachal Pradesh, Assam, and Sikkim. In fact, isolated places at Meghalaya also observed light to isolated moderate rainy spells.

Moreover, these rains are likely to continue to pour over Northeast India for a couple of days. Between March 29 and March 30, these rains are expected to intensify further and fairly widespread light to moderate rains along with some isolated heavy showers are likely to occur.
