After a few days of relief, the heatwave has returned to its glory in Tripura. The mercury has also started to rise. The good news is that the monsoon is entering the state on time.

However, no one could yet predict whether its impact will fall on Tripura.

According to the Indian Meteorological Department, a low pressure area is likely to form in the South Andaman Sea between Wednesday and Thursday. 

It may then develop into a very deep depression over central Bay of Bengal. Meteorologists are of the opinion that there is a possibility of creating a strong cyclone from that low pressure. 

Meanwhile, on May 24 and 25, there is a possibility of thunder and lightning rains in all parts of the state, along with the possibility of wind blowing at a speed of 30 to 40 km, according to the weather forecast. 

Among these, Dhalai, Gomati and West Tripura districts are likely to receive heavy rainfall on May 25.

According to the Agartala Meteorological Department, monsoon has entered the country this year through Andaman. Monsoon entered Andaman on May 19. Monsoon will enter the state on June 5 as the south-west monsoon is progressing so far. Before this, monsoon will enter Kerala on May 30.

Monsoon entered Kerala on June 8 last year. Monsoon arrived in Tripura on June 11. According to statistics, monsoons enter Tripura  after  Kerala.

India Meteorological Department (IMD) said the South West Monsoon has reached South Andaman Sea and Nicobar Islands. Monsoon is gradually moving inland over South Bay of Bengal. Meanwhile, monsoon entered Andaman on May 19.

Rains have lashed wide areas of Nicobar Islands in the last 24 hours, the Meteorological Department said. 

Meanwhile, Tripura state meteorologist Dr. Partha Roy said that if the environment is favorable, there will be normal rainfall this monsoon. However, the average rainfall in the state has been less than normal so far this year.

About 500 mm of rain has fallen in the state. Parts of North, Unakoti , Dhalai and Khowai districts have received good rainfall so far, he said.
