Heavy rains lash parts of Maharashtra as SW monsoon advances

The Mumbai metropolis received heavy rainfall following the onset of the southwest monsoon, leading to a slight delay in the running of suburban trains.

The Met office declared the onset of the monsoon over Mumbai, the adjoining Thane-Konkan areas, Ahmednagar, Parbhani and other parts of Maharashtra.

Flight and local train services witnessed delay due to weather conditions on Saturday.

Along the Konkan coast, people have been asked to avoid outdoor activities from June 9 to 11. Fishermen have also been warned to not venture out into the sea.

Meanwhile in Delhi, a duststorm with winds gusting up to 70 kmph, hit Delhi-NCR Saturday evening, bringing some relief from the searing heat. 

Light to moderate rain was also witnessed in many areas.

The duststorm pushed the temperature down by a few notches on what was a sultry day. Delhi recorded a high of 40.5 degrees Celsius and a low of 30 degrees Celsius.

18 flights diverted from Delhi due to rain.
