September 3, 2020: After a brief period of inactivity, wet weather appears set to mark its return over northeast India, as widespread showers have been forecast over the region starting Friday, September 4.





According to a report by The Weather Channel’s met team, the eastern end of the monsoon trough is likely to become active from Friday onwards.



Once it does, it will produce fairly widespread to widespread rains and thunderstorms with isolated heavy rains over the northeast Indian states starting Friday. Moreover, Sikkim is particularly expected to witness heavy to very heavy falls at isolated places on Sunday.





In view of this forecast, the India Meteorological Department (IMD) has issued a yellow watch over Sub-Himalayan West Bengal, Sikkim, Assam, Meghalaya, Arunachal Pradesh, Manipur, Mizoram, Nagaland, and Tripura from Friday to Sunday. The former four states will remain under the same watch on Monday, with the advisory urging residents to ‘be aware’ of the weather situation in their locality.
