Nagaland rains

The state of Nagaland has not seen any good rains since last many years during the winter season. Since the year 2012, rains have been scanty to deficit during the winter season. In fact, it has been only 2016 which has observed near normal rains during winters.

The winter rainfall deficiency in Nagaland was also seen exceeding 60 percent on some occasions.

This winter for Nagaland is following a similar track with large deficiency persisting over the state. As of today, rainfall deficiency is persisting at -59 percent.

The month of January was worse wherein the rain deficiency had exceeded 70 percent. However, few days of rains in February reduced the deficient figures to a marginal extent. In the month of February, the state has seen 15.3 mm of rains against its normal of 37.5 mm.

Now, some hope in terms of reducing deficiency is in sight. Rains in Nagaland are all set to appear starting February 24 and will continue until February 28. On the day when it commences, i.e. February 24, rains will be scattered and light.

However, rainfall is all set to pick up pace on February 25 and will increase even further on February 26 and 27 wherein the entire region is likely to see rains.

Northern half will get more showers as compared to the southern areas. Two days of incessant rains will be accompanied with lightning strikes and strong winds. Not only this, these showers could cause landslides, inundation, and flash floods as well.

Thus, residents are advised to exercise caution in the coming days and remain alert.
