Rainfall in Goa increased a lot on Friday because of the trough from Kerala to Maharashtra. Different areas in the State saw rain showers and some locals from Quepem and Shiroda said that it was hailing too. They had even collected some before they melted. “We are waiting for a confirmation about the hailstorm,” Rahul M, scientist, India meteorological department (IMD), Panaji revealed. On Friday, the IMD forecast a medium thunderstorm at few places in North and South Goa. The rain brought a welcome coolness, however, locals were concerned about whether the cashew, mango, and other flowering crops got affected.
Thundershowers and light rain will probably take place today. However, the weather is likely to be dry for the following three days. “The trough will weaken and we can expect some cloudy weather but not such intense spell,” the IMD said. The minimum temperature in mid-February was around 19 degrees Celsius. “The maximum temperature was also normal, between 31 to 32 degrees Celsius during this period,” Rahul stated.
