The India Meteorological Department (IMD) has predicted heavy rainfall over Karnataka, Kerala Konkan, Goa, and Mahe region from July 9 onwards due to the strengthening of the southwest monsoon over the Arabian Sea.
Besides, the moist easterly winds in the lower level from the Bay of Bengal are likely to establish gradually over parts of eastern India from July 8, the IMD added.
The meteorological department said the moist wind might spread into northwest India covering Punjab and north Haryana by July 10. Consequently, the southwest monsoon is likely to advance over the remaining parts of west Uttar Pradesh, some more parts of Punjab, Haryana, Rajasthan, and Delhi around July 10.
The IMD weather said Northwest India would witness scattered rainfall from July 9 and isolated heavy rainfall would occur over Uttarakhand from July 8.

As per the IMD's five-day rainfall forecast, there will be widespread rainfall in Karnataka, Lakshadweep, and Kerala from July 6- July 10.
However, Punjab, Haryana, Delhi, Rajasthan, Gujarat will witness isolated to scattered rainfall till July 10.
Yesterday, the IMD said that the Southwest Monsoon is set to revive and spread to the remaining parts of north India including Delhi by July 10.
According to the latest numerical weather prediction model guidance, the Southwest Monsoon is likely to revive gradually over the south peninsula, including the west coast and adjoining east-central India from July 8.
A low-pressure area is likely to form over west-central and adjoining the northwest Bay of Bengal off north Andhra Pradesh-south Odisha coasts around July 11.
After a good spell of rains in the first two and half weeks of June, the Southwest Monsoon has not advanced further since June 19.
