Heavy Rainfall in Northeast Indicated After Hottest October in 50 Years

Northeast India experienced one of the hottest months in years, resulting in one of the hottest Octobers in the last 50 years across the region.

The India Meteorological Department (IMD) has forecast a few spells of rain or thundershowers in the coming days to help cool things down.

Guwahati had an average temperature of 37.07°C for three days until October 16, while most cities in the northeast had temperatures that were 4-5 degrees higher than normal.

However, due to moisture intrusion from the Bay of Bengal, heavy downpours may occur in parts of the northeastern region over the next few days. IMD sources, on the other hand, ruled out the prospect of cyclones affecting the northeast region as a result of a low-pressure system.

The IMD issued a bulletin on Sunday indicating that rainfall activity in the northeastern states increased from October 18 to 21. Moisture intrusion is extremely possible due to strong lower-level southerly/southwesterly winds from the Bay of Bengal to northeast India during this period, according to current meteorological conditions.
