Waiting For Monsoon? Here’s When Monsoon Is Slated To Arrive In Mumbai As Per The Met Dept According To IMD

The Indian Meteorological Department (IMD) predicts clear skies for Mumbai on Thursday and anticipates hot and humid conditions throughout the week. The monsoon is expected to reach Maharashtra by around June 9 to 10, with Pune and Mumbai experiencing the onset shortly thereafter. Following the announcement of a nearly on-time monsoon in Kerala around May 31 (with a margin of error of four days), weather experts predict that the monsoon will progress as expected across south peninsular India, the northeast, and Maharashtra.

The Role Of Cyclones In Monsoon Progression

Notably, there are no signs of cyclones forming in the Arabian Sea or the Bay of Bengal, which is beneficial for the monsoon’s advancement. Cyclones usually disrupt the monsoon’s path, but their absence means a smoother progression of the monsoon across the regions. The northeast typically welcomes the monsoon season by June 5, with further advancement influenced by additional monsoon pulses.

Current atmospheric conditions include some cyclonic circulations near the Lakshadweep and Comorin areas. Southwest winds should strengthen gradually, and a low-pressure system may develop over the equatorial Indian Ocean by May 26, which could enhance rainfall in south India.
