Southwest monsoon arrived in Mumbai on Sunday, two days ahead of schedule, bringing the season's first spell of showers for the country's financial capital. 

Southwest monsoon reached Maharashtra on 6 June after it made its onset over the Kerala coast on 31 May, a day ahead of its typical arrival. With this, very heavy rainfall is likely over south Konkan, Goa, south Madhya Maharashtra, Coastal and north interior Karnataka till Monday, the India Meteorological Department (IMD) said on Sunday.

“Southwest monsoon has further advanced into remaining parts of central Arabian Sea, some parts of north Arabian Sea, some more parts of Maharashtra, including Mumbai, today. Therefore, isolated extremely heavy rainfall is seen over south Konkan and Goa, south Madhya Maharashtra and coastal Karnataka on 9 and 10 June and north interior Karnataka during 9-11 June,” the weather bureau said.

Strong southerly winds

Assam and Meghalaya may experience very heavy rainfall between Tuesday and Thursday, sub-Himalayan West Bengal till Wednesday and Arunachal Pradesh on Wednesday and Thursday.
