The meteorological department has predicted that rainfall is likely to occur over the next five days over parts of Assam. Guwahati, too, has been witnessing spurts of rainfall over the past two days.
As per officials in the meteorological department, moderate rains and thundershowers are likely to continue at most places over Assam over the next few days. As per the local forecast for Guwahati and neighbouring areas, generally cloudy sky with one or two spells of rain/ thundershowers has been predicted with a maximum temperature on Tuesday, October 1 likely to be 31 degrees Celsius.
