Meanwhile, widespread rain, thunderstorm and lightning have been forecast for south Konkan and Goa, Karnataka and Kerala and Mahe during the next 3 days due to an offshore trough running from North Maharashtra coast to North Kerala coast.

“Due to the adverse influence of mid-latitude westerlies, a hiatus in further advance of Southwest monsoon into remaining parts of northwest India. The situation is being monitored continuously and will be updated on a daily basis. The delay may be for 7-10 days. The situation will be more clear tomorrow,” news agency PTI reported quoting Kuldeep Srivastava, the head of the IMD’s regional forecasting centre.
