Nilesh Ladhad: I have given an estimate of Monsoon advancing to Kerala on 3rd June...now your region will be after Mumbai, that is around 15th June, or later. But can expect humid weather and light pre monsoon showers after 7th June..

Anoop: Curently heat is in West MP, Vidharbh and Telengana regions. But, as mentioned, i expect heat in NW India after 1st week of June.In June , after 7th, temps can touch 48c in Rajasthan.

Moshin: As explained, the Monsoon current will advance into Kerala around 3rd June...Situation will start with strong NW winds changing to SW in Kerala after 1st June...and then the gradient increases .

Last 3 years monsoon failed AP - this year if it fails Rayalseema will be in deep trouble, Telangana/north AP may get mercy rains due to serial lows over Orissa during SWM....
