“A low-pressure area is over Andhra Pradesh coast and it will move in West-Northwest direction towards Maharashtra across Telangana. A cyclonic circulation is also seen over the North East Arabian Sea, south of Gujarat. The combination of these weather parameters will activate the monsoon surge over Konkan and Goa, including Mumbai,” Skymet said in its weather report.
