Though the Meteorological Department predicted for heavy rainfall later this week, Mumbaikars were in for a surprise as it rained in the most parts of the city today. Heavy rains with strong winds brought the much needed relief. Meteorological Department had earlier said monsoon is likely to reach Maharashtra and Goa in the next two days, the India Meteorological Department (IMD) said today, with a private weather forecasting agency predicting sustained heavy rains later this week. Rain over the western coast, especially in Mumbai, is likely to peak between June 8 and 10, private agency Skymet said. However, the government said as monsoon is strengthening, increased rains were expected from June 7 in Kerala, coastal Karnataka, Konkan belt and Goa. It also warned of “possible flooding” from June 10 onwards in these areas.
