“The Vidarbha region would receive the showers first. Although it would mainly cover the northern part of the state from east to west, there could be very heavy showers in a few places,” she said.

Afterwards, there will be showers over northern Maharashtra, followed by the coastal districts of Palghar, Thane and Mumbai, she added.
