However, there is going to be "no significant" change in the temperatures in northwest India for the next five days, which is reeling under intense heat.

"Conditions continue to remain favourable for the onset of southwest monsoon over Kerala in next 48 hours," the India Meteorological Department (IMD) said on Monday.

The IMD had earlier said that monsoon should hit the Kerala coast on 7 June, with an error margin of plus or minus four days.

The MeT department has also predicted "heavy to very heavy rains" in coastal Karnataka and Kerala, Arunachal Pradesh, south interior Karnataka and Lakshadweep.

Thunderstorms accompanied with squall are very likely at isolated places over Telangana and north interior Karnataka.

"Heavy to very heavy rains are also likely at isolated places over sub-Himalayan West Bengal, Sikkim, Assam, Meghalaya, Manipur, Mizoram and Tripura," it said.

However, heatwave conditions are "very likely" to prevail over isolated places in Rajasthan and west and east Madhya Pradesh, Punjab, Haryana, Chandigarh, Delhi, south Uttar Pradesh and Gujarat.
