The monsoon arrived in Mumbai on Sunday, two days ahead of schedule, owing to favorable weather along the Maharashtra coast, according to the India Meteorological Department.

As reported by PTI, following heavy rains on Sunday, water logged numerous locations, including Byculla, Sion, Dadar, Mazgaon, Kurla, Vikhroli, and Andheri, severely limiting vehicular movement and generating protracted traffic jams.

Local train services, which are the city's lifeline, were also delayed due to water accumulation on tracks in several areas, according to officials.
