Panaji: The South West monsoons are expected advance over Goa in next 24 hours with the heavy rains predicted at isolated places in the coastal state, the Indian Meteorological Department has said today.

“The monsoon has already reached Northern Karnataka and proceeding over Goa with a pace that it will reach the coastal state in next 24 hours,” IMD’s Goa Observatory’s Director M L Sahu said.

The South West monsoons have already hit Kerala on May 29 and has reached Shirali in Karnataka on May 31, moving further towards Goa from where it will hit Konkan belt and entire Maharashtra, he said.

“In the normal course, monsoon moves in pulses. The next pulse of monsoon will push it towards Goa and it is expected to happen in next 24 hours,” he said.

The state receives 2,500 mm of rains annually, which was little less than the average last season. “This time, the projections have maintained that the regional average of the monsoon would be 95 per cent which means rains would be normal,” he said.

After the arrival of monsoons in Goa, it would rains heavy at isolated places while there will be widespread rainfall in most of the areas, he said quoting the weather forecast for five days.

Goa has 13 stations from where the IMD has been collecting the data of rains to calculate the exact amount of rainfall in the state.

Sahu said that the state has also commissioned Doppler Radar since April, 2017 due to which the pre-monsoon forecast has been more accurate. The radar has the range upto 400 kilometres from all the sides with better perception up to 250 kilometres, he added.

The radar has been covering entire Konkan cost and also Northern Karnataka assisting IMD’s stations like Gadag, Belgaum, Ratnagiri, Satara, Sangli, Bajpe, Shimoga amongst others.

While Goa based Doppler radar covers South Konkan coast, Mumbai based has North Konkan under its range, he said.
