Shillong: The India Meteorological Department (IMD) issued a warning on Tuesday predicting heavy rain in Assam, Meghalaya and Arunachal Pradesh, after two days of light to moderate rain in the region.
The warning extends into Tuesday and Saturday, with isolated heavy rain expected.
According to the IMD, the three states will receive light to moderate rain from Wednesday to Friday. The ongoing weather pattern is attributed to a cyclonic circulation at about 1.5 km above sea level over Northeast Assam and adjoining areas.

In the past 24 hours, Assam received over 10 mm of rainfall, marking a significant increase of 168% compared to the normal average of 3.8 mm. Similarly, Arunachal Pradesh recorded over 17 mm (159% above normal), while Meghalaya experienced 20.7 mm (340% above normal) rainfall. Tripura and Nagaland also reported above-average rainfall.

In Assam, Silchar recorded the highest rainfall at 29.8 mm, followed by North Lakhimpur (27.8 mm) and Guwahati (25 mm).

Sanjay O’Neil Shaw, deputy director-general of meteorology at the Regional Meteorological Centre in Guwahati, highlighted the likelihood of fairly widespread to widespread light to moderate rainfall with isolated thunderstorms and lightning over Arunachal Pradesh. Additionally, scattered to fairly widespread rainfall is expected over Assam, Meghalaya, Nagaland, Manipur, Mizoram, and Tripura until Saturday, along with the heavy rainfall warning.
