Goa Witnesses Light Rainfall

On Thursday, a few parts of Goa experienced light rainfall. A few days back, the India meteorological department (IMD) had forecast cloud formation with rain and thunder from February 17 to 19.

Its rain gauge stations reported rain in Mormugao and Panaji. Dabolim, Bambolim, and nearby areas also saw rain. . “Besides the trough, there is a circulation of 1.5km above mean sea level over Madhya Maharashtra. These systems are causing moisture incursion over Goa, therefore bringing in the rain. The condition will persist for a few more days so we can expect cloud formation and light rain activity at one of two places over Goa,” IMD scientist, Rahul M said. This season the easterly winds have been stronger.

It is unusual for rain to fall in the month of February according to Ramesh Kumar, former NIO scientist, and meteorologist. These unusual rains have not only hit Goa. “The all India spatial distribution of rainfall shows that the west coast of India, including our Konkan and Goa meteorological subdivision, has excess rainfall from January 1 to February 17. The Tamil Nadu subdivision has the largest excess rainfall of 22.7% and both the island groups, Andaman and Nicobar, have an excess of 66.7% and Laccadives has an excess of 20.2%,” he revealed.
