Rainfall likely over parts of NE region

India Meteorological Department (IMD) has predicted fairly widespread to widespread light rainfall in parts of North East region during the next 48 hours.
Under the influence of a north-south trough and strong southwesterly winds from Bay of Bengal to northeastern states at lower tropospheric levels, IMD stated that fairly widespread to widespread light/moderate rainfall with thunderstorm/lightning (40-50 kmph) very likely over Assam-Meghalaya; with thunderstorm/lightning/gusty winds (30-40 kmph) over Nagaland-Manipur-MizoramTripura and with thunderstorm/lightning over Arunachal Pradesh on April 1.
It also predicted isolated heavy rainfall over Assam-Meghalaya and Arunachal Pradesh during March 31 and 1st, 3rd and 4th April and over Sub-Himalayan West Bengal-Sikkim on 3rd and 4th April, 2022. IMD also predicted that northwest and central India and parts of the northeast are expected to experience above-normal maximum temperatures in April. Normal to below normal maximum temperatures are likely in south peninsular India, many parts of the eastern parts of the country and the adjoining areas of the northeast, it stated. It also said northwest and central India and some parts of northeast India were expected to receive below-normal rainfall in April. “Normal to above-normal rainfall is likely over many parts of south Peninsula, western parts of central India and parts of northeast India,” the weather office said.
