Guwahati: The Indian Metrological Department (IMD) said on Monday that moderate rainfall would occur over Assam, Meghalaya, Nagaland, and Manipur during the next 5 days.
Heavy rainfalls are very likely to occur over Arunachal Pradesh on 21 and 22 February.
Meanwhile, Sikkim and Sub-Himalayan West Bengal will also witness rainfall during the next 3 days. However, thundershowers are predicted over Assam and Meghalaya from February 21 to 23.
The official stated that due to southwesterly winds from the Bay of Bengal over the Northeastern States at lower tropospheric levels, light to moderate scattered to widespread rainfall is very likely over Arunachal Pradesh and light isolated to scattered rainfall is expected over Assam, Meghalaya and Nagaland and Manipur during the next five days.
A Western Disturbance as a trough in middle tropospheric westerlies runs roughly along Longitude 65°E and north of Latitude 30°N and an induced cyclonic circulation lie over Punjab and adjoining north Pakistan in lower tropospheric levels, official added.
Moderate scattered to fairly widespread rainfall/snowfall is very likely over Western Himalayan Region during the next 24 hours and light isolated rainfall or snowfall during the subsequent 24 hours
