Monsoon arrives in Mumbai; SW monsoon active over Kerala

The southwest monsoon arrived in Pune on Saturday (04-June-2011) — three days before its normal date of arrival of June 7.
The southwestern summer monsoons occur from June through September. The Thar Desert and adjoining areas of the northern and central Indian subcontinent heats up considerably during the hot summers, which causes a low pressure area over the northern and central Indian subcontinent.

Monsoon has arrived in the island city of Mumbai. The meteorological department of Mumbai in its official announcement today said that Southwest monsoon has further advanced into remaining parts of Central Arabian Sea and Konkan region including Mumbai.

It said that rainfall occurred at most places over Konkan and at many places in Maharashtra including a few places over Marathwada.

Heavy showers were witnessed all through the day, with rainfall recorded at 26.1 mm between 8.30 am and 5.30 pm. Last year, the monsoon had arrived in Pune on June 11, while it arrived on June 21 in 2009.
