GUWAHATI, Jan 21 � The prevailing weather condition in the NE region is likely to continue during the rest of the current month, of course with some intermittent sunny days providing some soothing breaks. This weather condition is expected to lead to rainfall at many places over Arunachal Pradesh and at few places over Assam and Meghalaya and at one or two places over Nagaland-Manipur-Mizoram � Tripura during the next 24 hours.
It may also result in rain at some places over Guwahati and its neighbourhood during the evening or night today. The city is likely to be covered by a veil of fog in the morning hours tomorrow, said Deputy Director General of Meteorology (DDGM) of the city-based Regional Meteorology Centre (RMC) H Pathak.
Today a cyclonic circulation is seen over North East Assam and adjoining areas. A trough of wind system is also seen running from Bhutan to Mizoram across Assam.
Under the influence of these two systems cloud cover and rainfall activities have been observed in the North East region, Pathak said.
The city today recorded a maximum temperature of 18.4 degree Celsius and a minimum temperature of 10.4 degree Celsius.
An almost similar cold weather condition was witnessed during December 22, 23 and 24 last year under the influence of a foggy weather condition from morning to noon. It was associated with the foggy condition prevailing between Rajasthan to Bangladesh.
Again, a similar condition was observed on January 9 and 10 under the influence of a trough of low pressure running from the East Central Bay of Bengal to Central Assam and then since January 10 till January 13 under the influence of a cyclonic circulation over Bangladesh and its adjoining areas. The northerly and north easterly winds also contributed to the cold weather condition then.
