Monsoon vigorous over Goa - Posted June 27, 2016

Though SW Monsoon arrived 4 days late on June 10, its performance in Goa so far has been above normal.

As per IMD records the top five centers with highest rainfall from June 1 till  8 am, June 27, 2016 are:

1. Mormugao - 1236.6 mm (48.69 inches)
2. Dabolim - 1056.7 mm (41.60 inches)
3. Canacona - 985.2 mm (38.79 inches)
4. Quepem - 954.0 mm (37.56 inches)
5. Panjim - 952.7 mm (37.51 inches)

Of course these figures include the pre - monsoon showers too, before June 10.

As seen above from the chart prepared by IMD Goa, Goa has so far received 17% above normal rainfall, mostly due the heavy rainfall last week.

The South West Monsoon has covered most of India, after initial lag, except N Gujarat, parts of Rajasthan, Punjab, Haryana, W UP and parts of NW, as seen in the monsoon progress chart from IMD, as of June 27, 2016.

Let's watch if the monsoon maintains its momentum, as it is forecast to do till October 2016!
