Heavy to extremely heavy rains have been occurring over the West Coast particularly South Konkan and Coastal Karnataka. Moreover, flooding has been reported in many areas of Kerala during the past days.
In the last 24 hours from 8:30 am on Wednesday, Panjim in Goa recorded heavy rain to the tune of 155 mm, followed by Ratnagiri at 145 mm, Mangalore 115 mm, Karipur 78 mm, Kochi 73 mm, Alappuzha 75 mm, Cannur 49 mm, Honnavar 44.7 mm and Harnai 40 mm of rain.
Now we expect the rain belt to shift northwards as the trough which is running from Konkan and Goa will shift slightly northwards. Thus, North Konkan and Goa including Mumbai will also start receiving moderate showers. In fact, the cyclonic circulation over South Konkan and Goa will also enhance the rainfall activity.
Meanwhile, Monsoon rains may reduce marginally over Kerala and adjoining South Karnataka. Despite decreased rains, light to moderate rain with one or two heavy spells will continue during the next few days over Coastal Karnataka and Kerala. However, rains will once again pick up the pace after 48 hours and the entire West Coast, right from North Konkan to Kerala will once again receive moderate to heavy showers.
