Meanwhile, several parts of the state on Wednesday witnessed pre-monsoon showers while the state capital received a drizzle in late afternoon.

The intermittent showers caught people unaware in several districts of Marathwada and western Maharashtra, slightly affecting the normal life, IMD officials said.

"The southwest monsoon is expected to reach Maharashtra tomorrow or the day after tomorrow. The conditions are favourable so far," they said.

Some parts of Marathwada region witnessed heavy showers.

According to sources, the Revenue Department officials have been asked to visit affected farms personally and submit a report.
