Moderate to heavy rains lashed various parts of Goa since yesterday marking the arrival of the southwest monsoon in the coastal state.

The state had witnessed pre-monsoon showers earlier this week.

"The monsoon has advanced over Goa since yesterday and we can expect heavy to very heavy rainfall in isolated places today," Goa Meteorological department's director M L Sahu told PTI.

All places in Goa received showers during the last 24 hours with Pernem taluka recording the highest rainfall, as per a bulletin released by the MeT department.

Sahu said the southwesterly winds are expected to blow at a speed of 45-50 kms per hour and may reach upto 60 kms per hour causing a gust or squall.
