GUWAHATI, June 19 - A low pressure area in the making over the North Bay of Bengal is preventing moisture incursion to the NE region of the country. This has prompted rise in the temperatures in the region. However, due to local condition, light rainfall activities were reported from a few places over the region during the past 24 hours.

To make life miserable for the common people in the State, failure in power supply has been reported from various parts of the State during the past several days.

Regional Meteorology Centre (RMC), Guwahati sources said today that though light rainfall activities were reported from a few places like Dibrugarh and Jorhat during the past 24 hours, there is less scope for rainfall activities over Assam-Meghalaya and Arunachal Meteorological Sub-divisions during the next 24 hours. But, moderate rainfall activities are very likely to occur at many places over the Nagaland-Manipur-Mizoram-Tripura Meteorological Sub-division during the same period, they said.

Guwahati today recorded a day (maximum) temperature of 37 degree Celsius, which was 5.3 degree Celsius above its normal day temperature for the period. Agartala today recorded a day temperature of 36.8 degree Celsius and it was 5.3 degree Celsius above its normal day temperature for the period. North Lakhimpur today recorded a day temperature of 36.2 degree Celsius and this was 5.2 degree above its normal for the period.

Significantly, once wettest place on the earth � Cherrapunjee, known for its mild subtropical highland climate, today recorded a day temperature of 27.4 degree Celsius, which was 4.9 degree Celsius above its normal day temperature for the period. Similarly, Shillong also recorded a day temperature of 26.7 degree Celsius today. This was 3.4 degree Celsius above its normal for the period.

Dhubri today recorded a day temperature of 35.2 degree Celsius and this was 4.1 degree Celsius above its normal for the period.

Pasighat today recorded a day temperature of 33.4 degree Celsius and this was 2.7 degree Celsius above its normal for the period. Imphal today recorded a day temperature of 30.8 degree Celsius and this was 1.6 degree Celsius above its normal for the period.

According to Sanjay Bhowmik, Chief General Manager of the Assam Power Distribution Company Ltd (APDCL), problems in the extra high voltage tower lines of the Assam Electricity Grid Corporation Ltd (AEGCL) impeded meeting total power demand in the last two days, particularly in the districts of Nalbari, Barpeta, Darrang and Udalguri. It was also found at times during the past two days that load restrictions were imposed by the State Load Despatch Centre (SLDC), Kahilipara, due to power overdrawal from the system. This also resulted in power cuts in several parts of the State.

In the Greater Guwahati areas, he said some internal line faults occurred during the said period and this, together with the SLDC-imposed load restrictions, resulted in power cuts on occasions.
