Northeast India has not seen very good rains this Monsoon season and currently, the entire region still continues to be on the deficit side. Usually, it is the northeastern pocket which remains one of the rainiest pockets of the country.

However, Northeast India has been witnessing good rains during the last 24 hours as rains have picked up pace.

In the last 24 hours from 8:30 am on Saturday, Kohima in Nagaland recorded a whopping 54 mm of rains, Imphal in Manipur saw 31 mm of rainfall. In Assam, North Lakhimpur 23.9 mm of rainfall, Silchar 9.2 mm, Golaghat 3.6 mm, Tezpur 8.6 mm rainfall.

Heavy rains were recorded over Cherrapunji with the city witnessing 47 mm of rains, Shillong saw moderate rains of 9.4 mm. Mizoram also saw moderate rains with Aizawl witnessing 21 mm of rains, and Lengpui 16 mm.

These rains have been attributed to the cyclonic circulation over western parts of Assam due to which moisture incursion has been taking place over the northeastern states.

Thus, moderate to heavy rains will continue over many parts of Northeast India particularly over the states of Assam, Meghalaya, Arunachal Pradesh and Nagaland. Other parts will also see rains of lesser intensity.
