GOA: A rollicking Goan monsoon is likely to continue its watery groove into September, as meteorological scientists expect La Nina to trigger more than average precipitation. “Goa is most likely to witness an above normal September rainfall this year due to La Nina phenomena.
There are 50% chances of La Nina developing over eastern Pacific Ocean from September, which will continue till next year,” M R Ramesh Kumar, retired chief scientist, National Institute of Oceanography (NIO) said. La Nina is a climatic phenomenon related to the cooling of surface ocean temperatures in eastern Pacific Ocean near the coast of Peru.
