GUWAHATI, June 7 - Presence of cyclonic circulation over the Andaman Islands and absence of any fresh moisture absorbing system over it, together with the high rate of relative humidity in the atmosphere left behind by the previous weather systems, have led to sweltering heat, making life miserable for the people in many parts of the NE region today.
Though there is a likelihood of the region getting rainfall in a scattered manner during the next 42 hours due to the local weather systems, there is no chance of heavy rainfall over the region till Friday. The region (particularly Assam-Meghalaya and Nagaland-Manipur-Mizoram-Tripura meteorological subdivisions) is very likely to get heavy rainfall on June 9 and 11, said the sources in the Regional Meteorology Centre (RMC) here.
But for Arunachal Pradesh, there is no heavy rainfall warning for the next five days, even as rainfall is expected at isolated places over Arunachal Pradesh and at a few places over the rest of the region today, added the sources.
Over the region, maximum temperature is most likely to fall from June 9 onwards under the impact of increased rainfall activities, sources said.
Guwahati today recorded a maximum temperature of 37.2 degree Celsius, marking a departure of 5.2 degree Celsius from its normal for the day in this respect. Silchar recorded a maximum temperature of 37 degree Celsius, which exhibited a departure of 5.8 degree Celsius from its normal for the day in this respect.
Likewise, Dibrugarh recorded a maximum temperature of 36 degree Celsius, which was 4.9 degree Celsius above its normal for the day in this respect. North Lakhimpur recorded a maximum temperature of 38 degree Celsius and this was 6.6 degree Celsius above its normal for the day, the sources pointed out.
