Northeast India: The best getaway for folks from Central India to beat the heatwave
SOHRA, April 3: At the same time when most parts of Central India are reeling under heatwave conditions, Northeast India is the best getaway for people who look for options to beat the heatwave.
For the last couple of days, most parts of Northeast India are witnessing some of the heavy spells of pre-Monsoon rains. At present, most states in Northeast India like Assam, Meghalaya and Arunachal Pradesh are witnessing varied rain intensity.
From 48 mm to 151 mm, World's second wettest place Cherrapunjee is experiencing shower of blessings as heavy rains continue to batter even as the record stands at 237.4 mm in a span of 24 hours (Saturday).
Other stations like Guwahati received 48 mm, Haflong 56 mm, Imphal 31 mm and Jorhat received 46 mm of rainfall.
This moderate to heavy spell of rainfall is expected to persist over the region for at least 2-3 days. Although the chances of flooding cannot be expected but rainfall with thundering will bring a certain sense of chaos in the region.
According to Skymet Weather meteorologists, this spell of rainfall can be attributed to the cyclonic circulation over Sub-Himalayan West Bengal and adjoining areas. This system has affected the weather over entire northeast region.
Another weather phenomenon that is helping the rainfall to be so vigorous is the moisture incursion from Bay of Bengal. These winds are warm and moist in nature which is helping the rainfall over the region.
The cyclonic circulation is the reason why isolated parts of Bihar, Jharkhand and Odisha will witness scattered rainfall activity.
