After the onset over Kerala was declared on June 8, almost seven days late, the advancement over Kerala, Tamil Nadu and most parts of the coastal Karnataka continued and on Thursday, the met department stated that conditions are favourable for further advancement of south-west monsoon over some more parts of central Arabian sea, remaining parts of coastal Karnataka, some parts of Konkan and Goa, north interior Karnataka, some more parts of Rayalaseema, coastal Andhra Pradesh and central Bay of Bengal in the next 48 hours.

With the usual date of south-west monsoon onset over Mumbai being June 10, there is a delay with the onset being late. While in the coastal areas, it is a little earlier than June 7, hence the delay.

Asked about the progress over the central parts of the state, the met officials said that they would observe the synoptic conditions for the further advancement to the central parts of the state in the coming days. “As of now, there is no clear indications when it would occur and it would depend on the overall progress of the monsoon from the coastal areas to the central parts of the state,’’ said the met official.
