Snow and Rain Alert: Arunachal, Assam, Nagaland


Northeast India is bracing itself for a significant bout of snow and rain as two distinct meteorological phenomena exert their influence over the region. The first, a trough in the middle troposphere, extends along 60°E north of 30°N. Simultaneously, a cyclonic circulation positioned over north Pakistan and its surrounding areas in lower levels intensifies the weather dynamics. Adding to the complexity, an induced cyclonic circulation over central Pakistan in lower tropospheric levels further magnifies the impact.

Snow and Thunderstorms to Sweep Sikkim and Arunachal Pradesh

From February 19th to 21st, Sikkim and Arunachal Pradesh are anticipated to witness widespread snow and rain accompanied by thunderstorms. This weather forecast raises concerns about potential disruptions in travel and outdoor activities. Residents are strongly advised to stay vigilant and take necessary precautions during this period.

The influence of the western disturbances extends beyond Sikkim and Arunachal Pradesh, encompassing the entire Northeast region. From February 20th to 23rd, scattered to fairly widespread light or moderate rainfall, along with snowfall, is predicted. Thunderstorms and lightning are expected to be part of the weather pattern during this period.

Heavy Rainfall Warning for Multiple States

Particular attention is drawn to February 21st and 22nd, where Sikkim, Arunachal Pradesh, Assam, Meghalaya, and Nagaland face a heightened risk of heavy snowfall and rainfall. The forecast includes the potential for isolated instances of heavy rainfall or snowfall, raising concerns about landslides, flash floods, and potential damage to infrastructure in these regions.
