Northeast India's climate has been running almost dry for the last few days. Some areas of Assam, however, experience isolated light to moderate rains. Currently, as of November 7, Arunachal Pradesh is reportedly 41 percent deficient. Nagaland, Manipur, Mizoram, and Tripura are 19% short of water. At the same time, 16 percent of Assam and Meghalaya were deficient. So, we can claim that the rains over Northeast India in the post-Monsoon season were much less.
The reason for these scanty rains was the absence of any major weather system over Bengal's North Bay, due to which hot winds from Bengal's Bay stayed back.
But now, particularly in Nagaland, Manipur, Mizoram and Tripura, we expect a good rain spell over Northeast India. Such rains are going to be in the wake of Cyclone Bulbul heading towards Bangladesh in the Bay of Bengal. Although its influence is already noticeable in terms of increased cloud coverage across Northeast India.
We expect scattered rain to start tonight over Nagaland, Manipur, Mizoram, and Tripura. There will be a gradual increase in rains, but until November 9 we expect the frequency to stay light to medium.
On November 10 and 11, as Cyclone Bulbul is set to make a landfall over Bangladesh, we expect mild rains with one or two heavy spells over these regions. It will move in the direction of Northeast India and quickly degenerate. The remains will continue to give scattered rains over scattered places in northeastern India until November 11.
