As for the Northeast, the exact same weather predictions have been made for Assam, Meghalaya, Nagaland, Manipur, Mizoram and Tripura for the next two days, and Arunachal Pradesh just for Friday.

These wet conditions will be largely influenced by the well-marked low-pressure area that’s currently over northwest Madhya Pradesh and neighbourhood, and its interaction with the trough in mid-latitude westerlies

Over the next 12 hours, this system is likely to crawl north-northwestwards and then gradually recurve northeastwards, across south Uttar Pradesh. In fact, there’s a possibility that this well-marked low may intensify into a depression over southwest UP around Friday, September 16.

Meanwhile, parts of East and Northeast India have been experiencing the impact of this system all week. Even yesterday, the IMD observed rainfall at a few places in Gangetic West Bengal, Nagaland, Manipur, Mizoram and Tripura, and at isolated locations in Assam, Meghalaya and Arunachal Pradesh.
