There is likely to be heavy rain over east Bihar, sub-Himalayan West Bengal and Sikkim, Arunachal Pradesh, Assam, Meghalaya, Nagaland, Manipur, Mizoram and Tripura during the next 24 hours, according to India Meteorological Department (IMD).

Conditions are becoming favourable for the withdrawal of southwest monsoon from West Rajasthan and adjoining areas Monday onwards as moisture reduces over the region and rainfall stops.

A low-pressure area is lying over east Bihar and its neighbourhood and the monsoon trough is running north of its normal position (Ganganagar to Bay of Bengal).
