Daily average rainfall of 0.2mm during last 24 hours

GOA: Daily average rainfall of a mere 0.2mm recorded during the last 24 hours, till Thursday morning, made it the season’s driest day so far. But after a four-day lull, monsoon activity is likely to revive briefly due to a circulation in Arabian sea.

The India Meteorological Department (IMD), Panaji, has issued a yellow warning. Light to moderate rainfall is likely and heavy rainfall very likely at isolated places from July 24 to July 26.

“The circulation over the southeast Arabian sea is likely to move northward, but its effect will last only up to July 26 and there will be only light rainfall subsequently,” IMD scientist Rahul M said.

The seasonal total rainfall has, however, touched 2,127.6mm (83.7 inches) as compared to a normal of 1683.5mm (66.2 inches), leaving a surplus of 26%. This is largely due to heavy to very heavy rainfall during the last two months.
