Fresh and intense rain showers are forecasted to pound the northeastern states over the next five days, from April 1 to 5.
According to the India Meteorological Department (IMD), a north-south trough stretching from East Uttar Pradesh to the Northwest Bay of Bengal, combined with strong and moist southwesterly winds coming in from the Bay of Bengal, would produce wet conditions over Northeast India.
As a result of their effect, rain of mild to moderate intensity is anticipated in much of the northeastern region over the next five days, from Friday to Tuesday. Thunderstorms and lightning will affect the region for the next 48 hours on Friday and Saturday.
Furthermore, isolated heavy showers (64.5 mm to 115.5 mm) are anticipated to occur over Nagaland and Manipur on Friday, Sub-Himalayan West Bengal and Sikkim on Sunday-Monday, and Arunachal Pradesh, Assam, and Meghalaya over the next five days.
