The reason for these rains can be attributed with the active offshore trough which is running from South Konkan coast to coastal Karnataka.

As per Skymet Weather, a trough is extending from southwest Bay of Bengal to the southwest Arabian Sea across South Interior Karnataka. In the wake of this, moderate to heavy showers are expected to occur over coastal Karnataka and some parts of South Konkan & Goa for the next 24 hours.
