Monsoon usually reaches Mumbai till June 7, but it takes 15 days to reach the whole state.
Officials said that there is hope for storms in the coastal areas of Mumbai with strong winds. During this time the sea will remain turbulent. Meanwhile, the Maharashtra government has instructed the fishermen not to go into the sea. The Meteorological Department has said that in the next two days the low pressure moving towards north-west can be deep and can turn into a cyclone. Due to cyclonic circulation above the Lakshadweep region and adjoining southeast Arabian sea there is a low pressure area. There is a possibility of a low-pressure area in the areas of the Middle East and its adjoining Middle Arabian seas during the next 48 hours.
Government asked the farmers not to sow
Due to delays in the south-west monsoon, the state government has asked the farmers not to sow in haste. After the initial rain, the soil needs time to prepare for sowing. The Meteorological Department said that the conditions in South Arabian Sea, Lakshadweep and the rest of Kerala are favorable for the South-West Monsoon Movement.
Monsoon arrived in Kerala on Saturday

Sky Met scientists Samar Chaudhary said that this time the monsoon is expected to remain weak due to El Nino and global warming. A month after the cyclone warnings in the Arabian Sea, there was a huge devastation in Odisha, West Bengal and Andhra Pradesh on the east coast.
