After a slight dip, pre-Monsoon weather activities over the North Eastern states-- Assam, Arunachal Pradesh, Meghalaya, Nagaland, Manipur, Mizoram and Tripura have once again picked up pace.

At present, a cyclonic circulation is persisting over Assam and adjoining parts of Meghalaya. Moreover, humid winds blowing over the region from Bay of Bengal are continuously increasing moisture in Northeast India.

Due to these weather conditions, the region may expect light to moderate rain and thundershower activities for the coming two to three days. From May 30, rain intensity will be heavy to very heavy at times particularly over Arunachal Pradesh, Assam, Meghalaya and Nagaland. Meanwhile, Manipur, Mizoram and Tripura will also witness good rains, but intensity will be slightly less in comparison to the northern states.

Thereafter, the intensity of pre-Monsoon weather activities over the North Eastern states will keep on increasing and heavy to very heavy to continue until the week of June.

On June 1, the region will experience further increase in the rain and thundershower activities. During this time, in the wake of such widespread heavy rains, many disruptions like water logging or flash floods may occur in parts. However, these rains will continue till the onset of Southwest Monsoon over North East.

It needs mention here that in the meteorological parlance, a cyclonic circulation (Cycir) is an atmospheric wind flow in upper levels associated with any low pressure system and under it, the wind flow is counter clockwise in the Northern Hemisphere and clockwise in the Southern Hemisphere.

A Low Pressure Area is an area in the atmosphere in which the pressures are lower than those of the surrounding region at the same level and is represented on a synoptic chart by a system of one closed isobar (wind speed on the surface < 17 Knots (Kts) when the system is at sea or one closed isobar in the radius of 3 Deg. from the centre over land).
