PANAJI: Indian Meteorological Department (IMD) has warned of light rains and thundershowers across Goa for the next 3 days due to the cyclonic circulation over Comorin area to East-central Arabian Sea off Karnataka coast.

“A trough runs from cyclonic circulation over Comorin area to East-central Arabian Sea off Karnataka coast extending upto 1.5 km above mean sea level. Light rain/thundershowers very likely at one or two places over North&South Goa for about 3 days from 21st October,”

The southwest monsoon is likely to withdraw on October 26, the same day when the northeast monsoon is expected to commence over southeast peninsular India, India Meteorological Department (IMD) said. The northeast monsoon brings in rains mostly to Tamil Nadu, parts of Andhra Pradesh and Kerala.

“With likely setting in of north-easterly winds in the lower tropospheric levels over the Bay of Bengal and extreme south Peninsular India, the southwest monsoon is likely to withdraw from the entire country around October 26. Simultaneously, the northeast monsoon rains are also likely to commence over the southeast peninsular India from around October 26,” IMD said in a release.

As against the normal date of October 15 when the southwest monsoon completely withdraws from across India, this time the process is delayed. The commencement of withdrawal too had started on October 6 against the normal date of September 17.
