The southwest monsoon hit Mumbai Tuesday, covering all of Maharashtra after a rather slow-progressing stage experienced until last week. The monsoon, which generally arrives in Mumbai on June 10 every year, is behind schedule by more than two weeks, which is the longest such delay in the last ten years. Strong monsoon winds are likely to prevail between June 25 and June 28, making the further advancement swifter.

Rain and thunderstorms were observed at many places over Himachal Pradesh, Coastal Karnataka, Arunachal Pradesh and Andaman & Nicobar Islands; at a few places over Kerala, Sub-Himalayan West Bengal & Sikkim, Assam & Meghalaya and Nagaland, Manipur, Mizoram & Tripura on Tuesday.

Maximum temperature in Bihar, East Madhya Pradesh and a few places over Vidarbha and Jharkhand recorded 5.1-degree Celsius above normal.

Meanwhile, severe rainfall deficit in Kerala is being seen as the result of the late onset of the southwest monsoon and the emergence of Cyclone Vayu in the southeast Arabian Sea before it moved northwest towards the Gujarat coast.
