Guwahati: With the India Meteorological Department forecasting heavy rainfall for Northeast region in the forthcoming week, it seems the flood fury of the region is not going to end so soon. There are heavy rainfall predictions for all the northeastern states including Assam.
The weather forecast for the Northeastern belt is mentioned below:
Moderate rain/thundershower is very likely to occur at many places over Arunachal Pradesh, Assam, Meghalaya, Nagaland, Manipur, Mizoram & Tripura.
DAY 1: Heavy rainfall is very likely to occur at isolated places over Meghalaya
DAY 2: Nil
DAY3: Heavy rainfall is very likely to occur at isolated places over Mizoram
DAY 4: Heavy rainfall is very likely to occur at isolated places over Assam, Nagaland & Manipur
DAY 5: Heavy rainfall is very likely to occur at isolated places over Assam.
The above-mentioned forecast makes one thing pretty clear that the northeastern states to experience most rainfalls in the coming days differ. if the first day has more rains for Meghalaya then the second day is expected to be a big relief for the seven sisters. However, the third day will witness heavy downpour in Mizoram. Isolated places in Assam, Nagaland and Manipur are to have heavy showers on the fourth day. The fifth day will be an equally rainy day for Assam.
The weather observation of the IMD says, “The seasonal trough at mean sea level has shifted slightly to the south and its eastern end is now extending towards Northeast Bay of Bengal. Monsoon flow is likely to further strengthen over south and central Arabian Sea during the next 3-4 days.”
