Heavy rains are expected in the sub-Himalayan region of West Bengal, Sikkim and parts of northeastern India over the next five days, the Indian Department of Meteorology (IMD) said.
“The monsoon trough at mean sea level passes near the foothills of the Himalayas. One cyclonic circulation is found over eastern Uttar Pradesh and another over eastern Jharkhand in the lower tropospheric levels. A north-south trough runs from east of Vidarbha to the southern coast of Andhra Pradesh in the lower tropospheric levels,” the IMD said.
He said that under these conditions fairly widespread light to moderate rainfall with isolated heavy rain and thunderstorms were likely in Nagaland, Manipur, Mizoram and Tripura between Monday and Thursday, and in Arunachal Pradesh, the ‘Assam and Meghalaya over the next five days.
The IMD said fairly widespread light to moderate rainfall is also likely in Bihar on Monday, southeastern Uttar Pradesh on Monday and sub-Himalayan West Bengal and Sikkim through September 2. .”
