Mapusa: Three weather systems coming in from different directions are likely to cause thunderstorms and heavy rainfall in certain areas in Goa for next four days, the India Meteorological Department (IMD) said.
Thunderstorms accompanied with lightning and winds gusting to 40 kmph are very likely at isolated places on September 6 and 7 while heavy rainfall is very likely at isolated places on September 8 and 9.
