Indian Metrological Department (IMD) has forecast massive rainfall in Assam, Meghalaya, Nagaland, Manipur, Mizoram, Tripura, and Arunachal Pradesh between April 8 to April 10.
According to the IMD, a trough within the westerlies is currently running at 3.1 km above mean water level. As this technique moves eastwards over subsequent 24 hours, it’ll gain support from the moisture invading the land from the Bay of Bengal.
Under the influence of those environmental conditions, fairly widespread to widespread rainfall, along side thunderstorms, lightning, and gusty winds blowing at the speed of 50-60 kph, are all very possible over Assam and Meghalaya on Thursday, April 8, and Friday, April 9 and over Nagaland, Manipur, Mizoram, and Tripura on Friday, April 9. Moreover, isolated heavy rainfall likely over Arunachal Pradesh on Friday, April 9, and Saturday, April 10.
Indian Metrological Department: be aware
In view of those predictions, the IMD has issued a yellow watch Assam, Meghalaya and Arunachal Pradesh on both Friday and Saturday, with the advisory urging residents to ‘be aware’ of the local weather situation.
Similar conditions also are expected over these states on Wednesday and Thursday, although the precipitation is probably going to travel up a notch in terms of intensity also as distribution come Friday.
Meanwhile, due to the wet weather, the utmost daytime temperatures across the Northeast also are likely to stay low.
