As on April 16, Arunachal Pradesh is deficit by 50%, while Assam and Meghalaya are deficit by 26%. Similarly, Nagaland, Manipur, Mizoram and Tripura altogether are rain deficit by 24%. The normal rainfall for these states is so high that despite continuous rain and thundershowers, all of them are still deficit.

The northeastern states of the country are considered to be one of the rainiest pockets. Not only this during pre-Monsoon, major contribution of almost 40% towards precipitation comes from these states. Arunachal Pradesh and Meghalaya are considered to be the significant contributors amongst them.

These states remain aloof from heat wave conditions because of the terrain they are blessed with. Whereas, humidity levels remain high all the time and temperatures are usually in mid 30s. The comfort level over these states remain little low.

The pre-Monsoon activities over northeastern states are frequent and intense and at times terrain adds on to the complexity.

Lok Sabha Elections 2019 for Tripura and Manipur will be held on April 18. The elections won’t face any difficulty from weather point of view. These two pockets would witness much better weather in comparison to other areas, however isolated chances of rain cannot be ruled out.
