South West Monsoon advances upto Southern Coastal Saurashtra and South Gujarat....( Map on Current Weather Page)...Pushed into the Konkan and South Gujarat coast by the Western Coast off Shore trough, it also got a fillip into Southern Saurashtra aided by an UAC at 850 level which is S/SW off the Saurashtra Coast. Diu received 16 cms and Veraval 7 cms in 9 hrs ended 5.30 pm IST Sunday.
Would expect the UAC to merge in a upper level trough. Rains , heavy at times, for 1 more day in Saurashtra. Heavy rains in Coastal regions of Gujartat, with the Monsoon most probably rushing upto Dwarka..
The upper level trough would keep the off shore trough stable...bringing good rainfall in Southern Coastal Gujarat (Surat) and North Konkan.
Monday: Partly cloudy initially, getting cloudy in the day...Passing regional showers, a few heavy. By the evening, heavier thunder showers in the city. During the day, an average rainfall of 20-25 mms expected.
Tuesday: Cloudy, with intermittent showers. Increase in rainfall over Monday.Mostly the city will get frequent showers, some with thunder, and the 24 hrs rainfall ( Tuesday morning to Wednesday morning)could measure upto 35-40 mms.
Wednesday: Overcast with occasional showers...showers in the city will bring the day temperature down, but would not measure much more than Tuesday, maybe 30 mms.
Pune will be partly cloudy, and next week will see light rain in parts of Pune. Daily rain around 3-5 mms.
Kolkata: Monday/Tuesday/Wednesday: Lesser chnces of widespread thunder showers. A few showers in some parts or vicinity of city can pop up due to convection. Due to this, the day will be hot round 39c..

An evening storm may be a possibility next few days in parts of Delhi NCR...
Hot days for Islamabad and Pak Punjab cities...around 41-43c...Chances of evening thunder and rains on 17th and 18th June...possibly cooling the cities and bringing temporary relief from the heat.
