Torrential rain and thundershowers continued to batter the West Coast during the last 24 hours. In particular, the coastal parts of Karnataka and Konkan & Goa have received good showers. Few pockets in the region have also recorded isolated very heavy showers.
West coast rains during the onset of Monsoon 2016 were attributed to the cyclonic circulation in the Arabian Sea and off the Karnataka and Goa coast. The system kept the Monsoon current active over the region and brought moderate rains. In fact, good rain and thundershowers have been occurring over most parts of Kerala and Karnataka coasts since the end of May.
At present, we can see a feeble trough persisting along the West Coast which will continue to give fairly widespread rain and thundershowers over Kerala, Karnataka, Konkan & Goa. Few places in Konkan & Goa may receive heavy to very heavy rains. The interiors are still not receiving enough Monsoon showers, but the intensity of rain will now increase over Raigarh and Dahanu districts of Konkan & Goa.
Rain may pick up pace after 48 hours over Kerala coast as a fresh Monsoon surge expected to affect Kerala and Karnataka coast.
