The improved rainfall scenario since June 30 has helped the state’s seasonal rainfall deficit fall from -30 per cent on June 30 to -23per cent on July 4.

Monsoon is moderate to strong over the southeast and northeast Arabian Sea, from where strong and moisture loaded westerly winds are blowing to Maharashtra. This will cause widespread rainfall over the state. Konkan will receive isolated heavy rainfall during this week.

The IMD has issued an orange alert (alert, be prepared) over Palghar, Thane, Mumbai, Raigad, Ratnagiri, and Sindhudurg districts till July 8. Pune, Nashik, Kolhapur and Satara districts have been placed under yellow warning till Friday.
