    "Due to the formation of a low-pressure area over South East and adjoining East Central Arabian Sea and Lakshadweep area, the IMD has put Goa on 'orange alert,' he said.

    The coastal state will witness heavy to very heavy rainfall till June 3, he added. The low-pressure area is likely to intensify into cyclonic storm 'Nisarga' and cross North Maharashtra and South Gujarat on June 3, he said.

    The southwest monsoon, which already hit Kerala on Monday, will reach Goa by June 6, Mohan said. "Monsoon will advance further only after the low- pressure system in Arabian Sea dissipates and that may occur by June 5," he said.
