Originally published as: Pre-Monsoon Rains to continue over Northeast India
Northeast India has been witnessing light to moderate spells of pre-Monsoon rains during the last few days. These showers are occurring during a similar time frame when most parts of Central and North India are reeling under intense heatwave conditions.
The last 24 hours have also been rainy enough for Northeast India.
According to Skymet Weather, this spell of rainfall can be attributed to a cyclonic circulation persisting over East Bangladesh and adjoining Tripura. This system has affected the weather over the entire northeastern region.
Moderate winds coming from south- west direction is bringing the moisture content in the form of winds blowing moderately and causing good rains over these states.
Furthermore, we expect good rains to continue over Bangladesh, Manipur, Mizoram, Tripura and rest of Northeastern states for the next 4 to 5 days. The rain intensity is likely to further increase after April 24.
Rain belt is expected to gradually shift towards the north when Assam, Meghalaya and Arunachal Pradesh will record light to moderate rainfall.
Light to a moderate spell of rainfall is expected to persist over the region for the next few days. Scattered rains will continue over Nagaland, Mizoram, Manipur and Tripura.
This rainfall activity will not bring immense change to the current conditions over the northeastern states of India.
