Since last many days, many places over Assam, Meghalaya, Arunachal Pradesh and NMMT (Nagaland, Manipur, Mizoram, and Tripura) region have been witnessing good rains. In fact, a few places over Mizoram and Assam have even recorded heavy rainfall activities. Likewise, the last 24 hours were no different and the entire northeastern states of India continued to witness rainy spells.

Within a span of 24 hours from 8:30 am on Monday, Lengpui recorded rainfall to the tune of 61 mm, followed by Dhubri and Aizwal at 43 mm, Imphal 36 mm, Silchar 16.4 mm, Tezpur 15.2 mm, North Lakhimpur 12.5 mm, Lumding and Kailashahar 11.4 mm, Itanagar and Tinsukia 11 mm, Tawang 10 mm, Kohima 9 mm, Jorhat 7 mm, Dibrugarh and Golaghat 5 mm, Agartala 3 mm, Cherrapunji 1.4 mm and Guwahati 1 mm.

These weather conditions can be attributed to a cyclonic circulation which is seen persisting over East Bangladesh and adjoining areas. Further, this weather system is likely to weaken gradually after 24 hours.


Until then, several districts in Arunachal Pradesh, Assam, Meghalaya, Nagaland, Manipur, Mizoram, and Tripura may continue to receive light to moderate rain and thundershowers.

As the above-mentioned weather system is likely to weaken after 24 hours, the intensity of these rains over the aforementioned regions is expected to reduce significantly.
