Monsoon 2024: After the monsoon reaches Kerala, it's expected to take about eight to ten days to move across Maharashtra, according to the Meteorological Department. This means it will cover various regions of Maharashtra, including Mumbai, during that time frame.

When will Monsoon hit Kerala?

According to the Indian Meteorological Department, the Southwest Monsoon reached the Kerala coast and progressed into parts of northeast India starting Thursday. This year, the Monsoon arrived two days earlier than its typical onset date of June 1. Kerala has already seen widespread pre-monsoon rainfall.

When will Monsoon hit Mumbai?

"Traditionally, the monsoon arrives over Kerala by June 1st. However, we anticipate an early onset this year, expecting the monsoon to reach Kerala within 24 hours. Once it arrives in Kerala, it usually takes eight to ten days to cover Maharashtra, particularly Mumbai,"Sunil Kamble, Director of the India Meteorological Department (IMD) in Mumbai said, ANI reported.

The southwest monsoon's arrival over the Indian mainland is signalled by its onset over Kerala. As it moves northward, regions it covers experience relief from intense summer heat.

Monsoon 2024 update: IMD predicts above-normal rainfall

At a press conference on Monday, the IMD chief said that above-normal rain is expected this monsoon season across the country in a much-needed respite from the heatwave sweeping the country.
