northeast india rains

The northeastern states of the country have been witnessing good rainfall activity since a very long time now. In fact, on and off pre-Monsoon rains have become constant and the weather has not gone completely dry at all.

The last 24 hours saw significant increase in rain intensity over many parts of Northeast India particularly Assam, Meghalaya, Arunachal Pradesh and Tripura. Passighat in Arunachal Pradesh witnessed very heavy rainfall activity to the tune of 100.4 mm.

Meanwhile Manipur, Mizoram and Nagaland witnessed subdued rainfall activity.

In the last 24 hours from 08:30 am on Wednesday, Itanagar 75.6 mm, Dhubri 5.6 mm, Dibrugarh 23.7 mm, Golaghat 37.2 mm, Jorhat 38.8 mm, Mazbat 12.4 mm, North Lakhimpur 47.8 mm, Silchar 4.6 mm, Tezpur 9.9 mm, Tinsukia 19 mm, Cherrapunji 20 mm, Lengpui 4 mm, Kohima 10.6 mm, Agartala 4.8 mm, and Kailashahar 16. 4mm.

Reason for these moderate to heavy showers can be attributed to the persistence of two cyclonic circulations, one over Sub-Himalayan West Bengal and another over eastern parts of Assam.

Further, weathermen predict that both the systems would continue to persist. Thus, we expect light to moderate rains with one or two heavy spells to continue over Assam, Arunachal Pradesh and Meghalaya.

Nagaland, Manipur, Mizoram and Tripura will also receive scattered light to moderate rains till May 28. Thereafter as Monsoon 2018 nears, we expect significant increase in rains over these states, with few very heavy spells during that time. Thus, we can say that all these weather activities can lead to landside and other destructive activities.
