The Weather-Man Says...

During August, Goa witnesses the monsoon season. 

The main feature of the Goan climate is the monsoon, which occurs between June and the end of September.  This period is considered to be out of season as the South West Monsoon starts in June and brings heavy rainfall of up to 3 metres over the next 3 months.

This time of the year finds Goa at its most colorful with emerald green paddy fields and plants growing before your eyes.
