The weather Blogger Rajesh Kapadia in his latest Blog post at the Vagaries of the Weather Blog, estimates moderate rainfall for Konkan and coastal Karnataka in the next three days. You can read his blog post by clicking on this link.

Sanguem with total seasonal rainfall so far of 96.4 inches, above Valpoi with 92.1 inches, looks set to cross the 100 inch mark before August end. However Pernem has so far received just 60.1 inches during the same period.

The area weighted average rainfall for Goa continues to be deficient, having received -22% below normal rainfall so far.

Goa needs above average rainfall on all days of the rest of the season, to recover to normal category, which seems a tall order right now!
