Mumbaikars will have reason to cheer this weekend as they will get some respite from the soaring temperatures and intermittent showers we have so far been blessed with this year. After battling with humidity, Mumbaikars can hope for a good monsoon as the Indian Meteorological Department (IMD) has forecast heavy rainfall on 23 and 24 June. Currently, the weather has not been conducive for rains in the Bay of Bengal, resulting in the delayed monsoon. This tide is expected to turn in the next two days as the monsoon arrives on the Konkan coast and then hits Mumbai.
In the last few days, the weather has undergone a lot of changes. On Tuesday, the temperature in Mumbai and other parts was 33-degree Celsius, while residents witnessed light showers in areas like Matunga, Dadar, Mahim and Goregaon. Normally, the monsoon arrives in India by 15 June and covers few parts of North India by 1 July.
