According to IMD, isolated heavy rainfall will occur on October 22 and 23 over Assam and Meghalaya. Additionally, isolated and extremely heavy downpours are expected to fall over Tripura on October 22 and on Nagaland, Manipur, Mizoram, Tripura on October 23.

The reason for the heavy downpour according to IMD is because of the well-marked low-pressure area over the west-central Bay of Bengal and the neighbourhood which has concentrated into a depression over northwest and adjoining the west-central Bay of Bengal.

They added, “It is very likely to move north-northeastwards and cross West Bengal & adjoining Bangladesh coast as a Deep Depression between Sagar Islands (West Bengal) and Khepupara (Bangladesh) by 23rd October afternoon.”
