Northeast to receive heavy rains within 48 hours, says IMD. Last week, North India, as well as West India, received heavy rainfall including some parts of South India. However, the monsoon will progress during the next few days and will pause for a week thereafter.
However, in the past 24 hours, heavy rains with very heavy spells at few places were witnessed over Northeast India along with isolated pockets of Uttar Pradesh, Kerala, West Bengal and Chhattisgarh. The northeastern states are also continuing to record good rainfall activities.
Currently, Mizoram’s capital Aizawl is the rainiest place in India with 148 mm of rainfall.
It will, however, not affect the onset of monsoon in the capital region of India. Delhi is going to receive regular rains from the last week of the month of June.
Senior Scientist of India Meteorological Department (IMD), D S Pai said, “It is only due to low pressure in northeastern part and it means the region and Bangladesh will get good rains during the period of pause.”
He further said that the capital region will receive the monsoon rains after 29th of June for about two to three days. However, there is no need to worry. This is because the monsoonal rains come in different phases. As of now, the situation is quite normal. The rain will arrive after a pause of around a week or 10 days.
As per the latest reports showcased by IMD, the northeast is going to receive heavy rainfall and hence the condition is becoming more favourable towards that region due to the arrival of south-west monsoon. However, apart from northeastern states, some parts Odisha, remaining parts of Bay of Bengal, including some parts of West Bengal as well as north-eastern states are going to welcome advance south-west monsoonal rains.
The report also says that the monsoon has already arrived into some parts of Marathwada, Chhatisgarh, Vidarbha, various parts of Gangetic areas, Assam and Meghalaya.
However, the onset of Southwest Monsoon over the southern regions of the country was before the scheduled date, i.e., 28th of May. The major contribution of the monsoonal reports is likely to come from West Coast which includes Konkan as well as Goa including Coastal Karnataka, Mumbai and Kerala.
Accordingly, the other regions that would give sufficient rain would be the northeastern states of Meghalaya, Assam, Arunachal Pradesh, Manipur, Nagaland, Tripura and Mizoram including some parts of Maharashtra and Madhya Pradesh.
