August 13/ 14 - Rains make a comeback!

After a dismal performance in August till date, the monsoon has made a concerted effort to make a comeback in Goa!

Post midnight of August 13, within 4 hours Panaji received more than 1 inch of rains. So did most parts of Goa.

After nearly a week of hours and hours of sunshine, August 13 was mostly overcast with intense intermittent rains starting afternoon. Humidity is stifling and Max day temperatures are around 31C nearly +3 normal.

COLA/IGES Meteogram for Goa shows rains continuing to be around 20-30 mm on Wednesday 14th, with decreasing rains on 15th.

The off shore trough has become unpredictable and hence the weak phase of the monsoon.

Let us see if things change when we update again on August 15.
