Rains and cyclonic storm in NE, east India over weekend

Even as a cyclonic storm looms over south Andaman Sea with a possibility of becoming a Low Pressure Area on Friday, two different systems brought bountiful rains over east and northeast India and many parts of southern states of Kerala and Tamil Nadu on Thursday.
Under the influence of an east-west trough from northwest Madhya Pradesh to Meghalaya and southwesterly winds from Bay of Bengal in lower tropospheric levels, scattered to fairly widespread light/moderate rainfall is very likely over Arunachal Pradesh, Assam, Meghalaya, Nagaland, Manipur, Mizoram, and Tripura during next five days with isolated thunderstorm/lightning over the region on Friday, the India Meteorological Department (IMD) said.
