Less Rainfall In June This Year

While the monsoons have truly set in Goa, the amount of rainfall received by the State in the month of June is less than what it has received for the same month last year and significantly even though the monsoons set in on 3rd June, earlier than the predicted date.

The total rainfall during the month of June this year was 82 cms while last year, for the same month, Goa had received 115 cms of rain.
According to K V Singh, Indian Meteorological Department’s Goa in charge, the drop in the rainfall was because the monsoon winds weakened after setting it. However, he said that they have now strengthened and predicted heavy rainfall for the month of July.
