Now according to the weathermen in Skymet Weather, a trough is extending from East Bihar to Gangetic West Bengal. Besides this, moist winds from the Bay of Bengal are affecting Nagaland, Manipur, Mizoram, Tripura, East Assam and Arunachal Pradesh.
As a result, we expect scattered light to moderate rain and thundershower activities over all these regions during the next 24 hours.
Thereafter, rains would reduce over the entire Northeast India however the weather will not go absolutely dry, as few spells of patchy rains would continue in view of the moisture supply from the Bay of Bengal.
As on September 25, all the regions of Northeast India remain highly rain deficient. Arunachal Pradesh has observed deficient rains to the tune of -31%, followed by Assam and Meghalaya -27% and Nagaland, Manipur, Mizoram and Tripura (NMMT) by -22%.
