This weather activity over northeastern states will remain until January 27. However, Manipur, Mizoram and Tripura may witness more or less dry weather conditions. Daytime temperatures will descend further over Assam, Meghalaya, Arunachal Pradesh and parts of Nagaland in the wake of rains.

After the passage of the Western Disturbance, we can expect dense fog to return over several places of Northeast India. This weather condition could be attributed to the increased moisture levels and low minimums across the region.
