These weather activities have been attributed to the trough in westerly is running across longitude 92˚E and latitude 25˚N.

Now due to the persistence of this weather systems, rainfall activity will continue over parts of Northeast India during the next 12 to 18 hours as well.

Thereafter, as the above-mentioned weather system would be weakening and moving northeastwards, rainfall activity will decrease significantly over the northeastern states.
