Extremely heavy rainfall is expected in isolated areas of Mumbai, predicts the met office. "Warnings should be issued now. Just stay indoors," tweeted Skymet Weather Services' founder and chief executive officer Jatin Singh on Monday.

On Saturday, much of the city received moderate to heavy rain in what was described as "pre-monsoon showers".

The southwest monsoon, which waters more than half of India's farmland, hit the mainland ahead of its normal schedule. It reached Kerala on May 29 instead of the usual June 1.
