Monsoon will resume in four days: Met dept

Panaji: Hopes of further onset of southwest monsoon, from its present position in Karwar, have risen after the India meteorological department (IMD) forecast resumption of monsoon activity in three to four days.
The northern limit of monsoon (NLM) has been stuck in Karwar for four days, as an upper air cyclonic circulation in the east central Arabian Sea disrupted the cross-equatorial winds.
But, after the cyclonic impact weakened, the southwesterly winds have not picked up momentum to revitalize the monsoon activity. But on Wednesday, IMD has stated in its forecast that conditions are favourable for further advance of southwest monsoon over entire Goa, some parts of Konkan, south and central parts of Maharashtra and other areas in the next three to four days. The rainfall activity has been on a decline since the last couple of days and the meteorological centre recorded 29.4mm in Quepem and 24.2mm in Pernem, while all other centres recorded light rainfall during the last 24 hours till Wednesday morning.
The maximum temperatures rose markedly above normal in north Goa district and rose appreciably in south Goa district.
The highest maximum temperature of 32.6 degrees celsius was recorded at Mormugao. Moderate rain is very likely to occur at most places in Goa during the next five days.
The total seasonal rainfall has reached 408.5mm since June 1, 2016. Among all centres, Dabolim has recorded 521.9mm, Mormugao 487.5mm, Quepem 475.6mm so far while other centres recorded on a lesser scale.
