GUWAHATI, Aug 18 - Less rainfall activities, by and large, over the NE region for the past about one week has resulted in the rise in the day temperatures in most of the places over the region today. It is, however, expected that the relief from this soaring temperature may start coming for the NE people for a period of few days, with effect from August 20.
During the mentioned period, rainfall activities were reported from some parts of the region. But such activities remained mostly scattered and over some places fairly widespread. During this period, the sky remained partly to generally cloudy over most of the places of the region.
Sources in the Borjhar-based Regional Meteorology Centre (RMC) here said that with 38.4 degree Celsius (C), North Lakhimpur today recorded the highest day temperature among the places of the region. This temperature was 6.2 degree Celsius above its normal for the period. However, this north Assam town had recorded its all-time high day temperature for August on August 25, 2016 with a temperature of 39.9 degree Celsius, said the RMC sources.
Guwahati today recorded a day temperature of 37.6 degree Celsius, which was 5.3 degree Celsius above its normal for the period in this respect.
Silchar today recorded a day temperature of 37.2 degree Celsius, which was 4.9 degree Celsius above its normal for the period in this respect, said the RMC sources.
