Meanwhile, as reported by PTI, according to a senior official from IMD, sections of Maharashtra, including the coastal Konkan region, as well as Goa, are expected to encounter light to moderate rainfall between November 23 and November 27.

Further, it was noted that the upper air cyclonic circulation over the Comorin area and vicinity and another similar development over the southwest Bay of Bengal off the Tamil Nadu coast had merged with the trough.
