South-west monsoons delayed for want of winds

PANJIM: The arrival of south-west monsoon in Goa has been delayed further due to absence of south-westerly winds, which brings the rains to the State.
An upper air cyclonic circulation over east central Arabian Sea off Karnataka and Goa, has resulted blocked south-westerly winds. As such, the rough sea weather condition prevails, with IMD Goa observatory directing fishermen not to venture into the sea for the next 24 hours.
“There is total absence of south-westerly winds along the Goa coast, hence the onset of monsoon has been delayed by another two-three days,” IMD Goa director V K Mini said.
However, conditions are favourbale for further advance of southwest monsoon into some more parts of Central and north Bay of Bengal during the next three days.
The south-west monsoon normally reaches the State by June 7. However, this year the onset of monsoon over Kerala was delayed by almost a week. “The IMD head branch has predicted above normal rainfall for the State,” Mini said. Meanwhile, the torrential rains and thundershowers continued to hit Goa.
