As pre-monsoon showers lashed Mumbai on Saturday morning, the Met Department said the arrival of monsoon might take a few more days.

“Rainfall in Chembur isn’t monsoon rains, these are just pre-monsoon showers,” the MeT Department told a news agency.


However, heavy rain lashed almost all parts of Kerala during the past 24 hours, as monsoon gained momentum.

The MeT office said heavy to very heavy rain will continue in the state till Monday.

Meanwhile, the government has activated District Emergency Operations Centres (DEOC) to monitor monsoon-related calamities.
