As on July 24, most of the northeastern states remain rain deficient where Assam and Meghalaya by 35%, Arunachal Pradesh 35% and Nagaland, Manipur, Mizoram, and Tripura by 26%.


Nonetheless, rainfall activities have now picked up pace over the region in the course of the last 24 hours, when North Lakhimpur recorded heavy rains to the tune of 70 mm, followed by Silchar 53 mm, Itanagar 40 mm, Cherrapunji 28 mm, Lumding 28 mm, Tezpur 19 mm, Kohima 19 mm, Imphal 15 mm, Dibrugarh 13 mm, Aizwal 11 mm, Agartala 11 mm, Guwahati 6 mm, Jorhat 5 mm and Kailashahar 5 mm.

Now, we anticipate the intensity of showers to increase slightly and light to moderate rains with one or two heavy spells to endure over most parts of the seven sister states for the next three to four days.

Moreover, Weatherman at Skymet Weather expects the rainfall to once more pick up speed over Northeast India around the end of July by 29-30.

This would be in view of a cyclonic circulation that is most likely to form over Sub-Himalayan West Bengal and adjoining Assam. During this time, i.e., between July 29 and August 2, we can anticipate few heavy to very heavy spells to lash Assam, Meghalaya and Arunachal Pradesh.
