Guwahati, May 17, 2019:
Entire Northeast India is gearing up for severe rainy days ahead, after an early start to pre-Monsoon in March and April.
The region also witnessed heavy rains in the last few days, covering up a little bit for the rain deficiency which had built over for the region in the season so far. These rains are likely to pick up pace and this prolonged spell is here to stay. It will be mainly moderate in category.
The second half of the spell would be more intense than the first one.
The reason for this upcoming spell is the flow of southeasterly winds blowing from Bay of Bengal to northeastern states.
According to Skymet Weather, a Cyclonic Circulation has formed over Bihar and adjoining region. Another Cyclonic Circulation can be seen over southern parts of Central Bay of Bengal. Both the systems would be infusing moisture over the region.
As per the weather reports, lightning, continuous rains, and flooding are some threats that the upcoming spell is going to bring along with. The skies would remain cloudy throughout the spell. The rains will lead to a further reduction of the day temperatures over the area and will be recorded somewhere around the lower 30s or even less.
With just a fortnight left for Monsoon, the pre-Monsoon rains are going to pick up. Heading towards the end of the pre-monsoon season and the beginning of Southwest Monsoon, the intensity of rain will keep on increasing.
As of now, the maximum rains in the region have been received by Meghalaya and Assam. These regions of the Northeast are going to receive the maximum precipitation.
