Heavy rains are likely to continue across Assam and Meghalaya for the next five days, with Kerala and parts of Tamil Nadu also expected to receive a lot of rain on Sunday.
For approximately a week, scores of locations in northeastern Indian states have seen extremely heavy rains, and Tamil Nadu and Kerala have received rain in various amounts over the previous two days.
The Northern States will experience rainfall due to strong southwesterly winds gushing from the Bay of Bengal, at lower tropospheric levels. Furthermore, rains are expected over Meghalaya, Assam, Sikkim, Arunachal Pradesh, and the sub-Himalayan region of West Bengal during the next few days, with isolated or scattered rains in Manipur, Nagaland, Tripura, and Mizoram.
Isolated heavy showers are predicted on the 13th of April over Arunachal Pradesh, and on the 12th of April over Meghalaya and Assam.
Rains are expected in Meghalaya, Assam, Manipur, Nagaland, Tripura, and Mizoram in the next five days. Meghalaya-Assam are likely to receive heavy showers this Tuesday and Wednesday; this will be seen on the 13th and 14th of April in Arunachal Pradesh.
On the 13th and 14th of April, Nagaland, Manipur, Tripura, and Mizoram, are expected to receive more showers.
“Heavy rainfall was witnessed over Kerala and ghat regions of Tamil Nadu on 10th April under the influence of trough or wind discontinuity over south peninsular India,” the IMD bulletin stated.
Squally weather (wind speed reaching 40 kmph to 50 kmph and gusting to 60 kmph) was seen over the South West of the Bay of Bengal, Gulf of Mannar, and the Comorin region on 10th April, owing to which fishermen were advised not to go into these areas.
Furthermore, in several northern states, the much-needed relief from the heat is expected after heavy rainfall, according to the Indian Meteorological Department (IMD).
According to the weather department, a new western disturbance is expected to hit the Western Himalayan Region from Tuesday night through. Temperatures are anticipated to drop by 2 to 3 degrees Celsius across numerous sections of northwest India as a result of this upheaval.
