State records 57pc surplus rain

By Staff Reporter

GUWAHATI, May 4 � The overall surplus in the State�s pre-monsoon rainfall has now come down to 57 per cent from the 88 per cent a few days back. Since March 1 last to May 3, the State has received a total rainfall of 467.3mm, against the normal of 296.9mm, said sources in the Regional Meteorology Centre (RMC) here today.

Meanwhile, sources said, a trough of low pressure is found running from East Uttar Pradesh (UP) and North West Bay of Bengal. This is accompanied by a trough in the lower level spreading itself between East UP and NE Assam across the sub-Himalayan West Bengal. It is extending up to .9 km above the sea level. These two troughs are embedded with cyclonic circulations one over East UP and the other over NE Assam.

Under the influence of these two troughs, rain or thundershower may occur at a few places over the NE region during the next 24 hours. There is also the possibility of a partly cloudy sky over the city and its neighbourhood during the period. Rain or thundershower may also occur in the city and its adjacent areas during the same period. Maximum temperature in the city is expected to be around 33 degree Celsius on Wednesday, said the sources.

Three more states of the region � Meghalaya, Mizoram and Tripura � also received surplus pre-monsoon rainfall this time. However, the other three states of the region � Nagaland, Manipur and Arunachal Pradesh� recorded deficit pre-monsoon rainfall, said the sources.

Meghalaya received a surplus rainfall of 124 per cent during the season this time, while Tripura received a 7 per cent surplus rainfall and Mizoram recorded a 3 per cent surplus rainfall during the season.

On the other hand, Nagaland recorded a deficit rainfall of 77 per cent, Manipur recorded a deficit rainfall of 75 per cent and Arunachal Pradesh recorded a deficit rainfall of 16 per cent during the season, said the sources.
