GUWAHATI, Sept 20 - Mercury shot up abnormally across the State since Saturday, but the weather office said that the temperatures are expected to fall due to thunderstorm activity forecast from Monday.

�Due to a low pressure area over Bay of Bengal, winds over the Northeast in lower level of the atmosphere are mainly easterly. Moisture supply from the Bay is practically cut off, which resulted in the high temperatures,� an official at the Regional Meteorological Centre here said.

The maximum temperature in Guwahati on Sunday was 36.8 degree Celsius, which is 5.2 degrees above normal. Dibrugarh was sizzling at 37.6 degree Celsius, which is a departure of 7.3 degrees. Tezpur and Silchar also recorded high temperatures of 37.3 and 36.8 degrees Celsius respectively. High temperatures were recorded across the State even on Saturday.
