City reels under intense heat

By Staff Reporter

GUWAHATI, June 5 - The day temperature in the city soared to an uncomfortable level today with the Borjhar-based Regional Meteorology Centre (RMC) recording 37.4 degree Celsius during the day. The city, with a day temperature of 38.8 degree Celsius, had recorded its highest June temperature between 2011 and 2018 on June 12, 2013.

Yet, a comforting feature for the residents of the city is that the RMC sources expect rainfall activities to start during the next 24 hours over the city. Thenceforth, the city is expected to enjoy a temperate weather condition till June 9. A similar situation is expected to prevail over other parts of the NE region during this period, sources said.

Sources attribute the prevailing weather condition to the absence of moisture-carrying wind to this region. A cyclonic circulation over the South China Sea has been preventing flow of such wind to this region for the past about four days.

As soon as this cyclonic circulation reaches the land areas, it will weaken losing its strength gradually and the process of moisture incursion to the region will start, sources said, adding, this process is expected to start from this night.
