GOA: While most parts of the state were lashed by heavy rain over the weekend, rainfall activity is likely to weakend from Monday. The heavy showers on the weekend were owing to a low-pressure area over north Madhya Pradesh and east Rajasthan. However, the system is no longer prevalent, thus decreasing the intensity of rainfall over the state.
“The state will experience only normal rain due to weak activity over Goa,” India meteorological department (IMD), scientist, Rahul M, said. In its weather bulletin, however, IMD has warned of strong wind with speed reaching up to 45-55 kmph likely to be prevalent along the Arabian Sea from August 30 to September 3. Fishermen have been advised not to venture along and off the coast during this period.
