Rainfall and thunderstorms have been forecast across the northeastern states for the next three days and possibly beyond.
As per the IMD, scattered to fairly widespread rainfall of light to moderate intensity is very likely over Arunachal Pradesh, Assam, Meghalaya, Nagaland, Manipur, Mizoram, Tripura, Sub-Himalayan West Bengal and Sikkim during the next five days, from May 27-29.
Arunachal Pradesh, Assam, Manipur, and Meghalaya may also experience heavy downpours at isolated locations over the next 24 hours.
In view of these predictions, the IMD has issued a yellow watch over the entire northeastern region for the next two days. The advisory urges the residents to ‘be aware’ of the local weather situation, particularly during thunderstorms.
According to The Weather Channel’s met team, these conditions will be caused by southerly winds blowing inland from the Bay of Bengal, towards the Eastern Himalayas.
