GUWAHATI, June 10 - Even as southwest monsoon has covered most parts of Mizoram, Tripura, south Assam and some parts of Manipur, the day temperatures are soaring in Guwahati and Agartala under the impact of a depression over the Arabian Sea which is moving northward. This system is to turn into a severe cyclonic storm after 30 hours since 8:30 am today and move north-northwest-ward during the next 72 hours.

This depression is preventing moisture incursion over the northeastern region of India and for the next three days this situation is likely to prevail, said sources in the Borjhar-based Regional Meteorology Centre (RMC) here.

Due to local conditions light rains are occurring over various parts of Assam and such rainfall activities are very likely to occur over Dibrugarh, North Lakhimpur, Tinsukia, Dhemaji, Jorhat, Sivasagar and Golaghat districts, this night, RMC sources said, adding, Guwahati may also experience light rainfall activities towards the night today.

To aggravate the rising temperature-related discomfort of the residents in several areas of the city, covered under the Guwahati Electrical Circle-I, the Assam Electricity Grid Corporation Ltd (AEGCL) has taken recourse to shutdown of its Jawaharnagar Grid Substation from 8 am today. This shutdown will continue till June 17.

This has made the Assam Power Distribution Company Ltd (APDCL) to take recourse to 50 per cent load-shedding in its Sonapur Electricity Subdivision. The subdivision covers the areas of Sonapur, Jorabat, Sarutari and 14th Mile. Besides, 20 per cent to 30 per cent load-shedding may also be resorted to by the APDCL in the areas covered by its Basistha Electricity Subdivision affecting areas such as Six Mile, Panjabari, VIP Road, and Jayanagar Chariali.

The Guwahati Electrical Circle-I includes the areas between Kamakhya Gate and Sonapur. Its total power demand is 240 MW in a day. The city�s power supply scenario deteriorated during the past two months because of the Sonapur Grid Substation remaining out of order, APDCL sources said.

Guwahati today recorded a day temperature of 36.4 degree Celsius. Dibrugarh 31 degree Celsius, Tezpur 34.2 degree Celsius, Silchar 32.3 degree Celsius, Dhubri 32.5 degree Celsius and Jorhat 32.4 degree Celsius.

During the day, North Lakhimpur recorded a day temperature of 29.5 degree Celsius, Shillong recorded a day temperature of 26 degree Celsius, Cherrapunji recorded a day temperature of 25 degree Celsius and Aizwal recorded a day temperature of 27.4 degree Celsius.
