Maharashtra received seasonal rains last week and now Gujarat is eagerly waiting for monsoon after a short spell of pre-monsoon showers. Satellite images show monsoon clouds inching northwards. The meteorological department has predicted light to moderate showers in parts of South Gujarat and Saurashtra this week. According to the website of India Meteorological Department, from June 11 to 13, light to moderate rain or thundershowers are very likely at isolated places in Gujarat along with Union Territories of Diu, Daman, and Dadra and Nagar Haveli. Dry weather will continue in Kutch district though, adds the forecast. Met officials said that with the early start of monsoon in Kerala, it was expected that the rains will arrive in the state around June 10. Officials added that monsoon is still on time as Gujarat traditionally reports the first showers in the third week of June. Temperatures remained high in the state with Bhavnagar topping the heat chart with 41.5°C. Ahmedabad(41.2°C) and Surendranagar (41°C) followed closely.
