Rain, thundershowers likely  to lash State today

Dimapur, March 15: Light to moderate rain and thundershowers are likely to lash almost the entire state of Nagaland, inclusive of both plains as well as hills, from March 15 to 18.
According to weather forecast of Nagaland State Disaster Management Authority (NSDMA) all districts – Dimapur, Kiphire, Kohima, Longleng, Mokokchung, Mon, Peren, Phek, Tuensang, Wokha, and Zunheboto all stand a fair chance of good showers. The sky will remain cloudy to overcast during this time period, he said.
The NSDMA said these showers will be intermittent in nature. It also did not rule out chances of hailstorm over a few areas. Partial clearance will be seen on March 18 but rains with reduced intensity will continue.
The NSDMA attributed the upcoming showers to the cyclonic circulation presently seen over West Bengal. The system would gradually move eastwards over Assam, Meghalaya and Nagaland and will start affecting the region from Friday onwards. (Page News Service)
