Exciting news on the weather front! The southwest monsoon is on the move, making its way into Karnataka along the Central Arabian Sea. Thus, according to India Meteorological Department (IMD), Maharashtra and Goa are next in line to experience monsoon showers within the next 4–5 days.

Meteorologists predict that the conditions are just right for the monsoon to make its entrance into Mumbai between June 8 and 10. On the other hand, pre-monsoon showers are expected to arrive in the city, by the afternoon or evening of June 7.

On June 3, officials from the Regional Meteorological Centre (RMC) were reported saying, that the southwest monsoon has advanced into more parts of the central Arabian Sea, Karnataka, Rayalaseema, coastal Andhra, Telangana and parts of west-central and northwest Bay of Bengal.

Additionally, per weather experts, a small-scale cyclonic circulation is expected to develop over the Arabian Sea near the Konkan Coast on June 7. This weather pattern is anticipated to bring in pre-monsoon showers to the Goa-Konkan coast, located on the windward side of the Western Ghats, between June 7-10.
