But meteorologists at the India Meteorological Department (IMD) expect the condition to persist for at least 24 to 48 hours.As southerly winds are blowing in, they are bringing in lot of moisture.“There are possibilities of isolated rain or thundershowers in the state,” Rahul M, scientist, IMD, Panaji, said.The minimum temperature recorded on Thursday was 22.3C - just a degree above normal.The maximum temperature was 31.8C - almost half a degree below normal.The widespread showers brought relief from the sultry heat, but cashew farmers are worried that the showers may continue.“A brief spell of rain may not cause damage, but if the rain persists, then it may damage the fruit and the flower,” a cashew farmer said.
