Staff Writer | June 6, 2017
After months of sweltering heat, relief is finally arriving as monsoon rain spreads across southern India.

After a brief pause in advancement, a rapid surge north and westward is expected over the next seven to 10 days.

This surge will bring moisture into central India as well as a significant shift northward along the west coast.

In Mumbai, heavy monsoon rains will arrive during this time, while New Delhi may have a much longer wait.

“Monsoon rains will reach Mumbai by early next week,” said AccuWeather Senior Meteorologist Jason Nicholls.

“This will actually be a few days after the normal arrival of June 10,” added Nicholls.

While monsoon rains are expected to reach Mumbai within the next week, more uncertainty hovers over the arrival of heat-ending rainfall in New Delhi and the National Capital Region.

The normal arrival of monsoon rains to the National Capital Region is during the second half of June, and that is expected again this year.
