The India Meteorological Department (IMD) had predicted pre-monsoon showers on Friday and rains from the first week of June.

"Rain or thundershowers would occur (on May 12) towards afternoon or evening," the prediction read.

Earlier this week, the IMD had also stated that monsoon rainfall would be 'above normal' this year and higher than the previous forecast, citing a change in the El Nino weather condition.

According to Skymet Weather, a trough is running from Madhya Maharashtra up to West Central Arabian Sea. Due to this, scattered rains have already occurred over Konkan and Goa and adjoining South Madhya Maharashtra.
