GOA: A low pressure area that has formed over north west Bay of Bengal is expected to bring heavy showers to parts of the state on Thursday and Friday. “With its intensification and movement, there is a possibility of increase in rainfall over the state on August 20 and 21. The system is going to enhance the monsoon winds over Goa. Wind speeds over the state will be at over 1.5km height,” India meteorological department (IMD) scientist Rahul M said.
The peak activity will be over by August 22 due to which the intensity of rainfall is expected to comparatively weaken by then. “Though the rain is expected to be heavy, it is not going to be as intense as it was in the first week of August. There will only be an increase in rainfall activity,” Rahul said.
