HYDERABAD:� It's good news for people reeling under the hot weather for the last two months. According to the Indian Meteorology Department (IMD), the pleasant weather conditions seen on Saturday are� likely to prevail along with light to moderate thundershowers and gales in many places in the state including Hyderabad, with the onset of the South-West monsoon scheduled to set in Kerala on May 31.

According to the long- range forecast of IMD, the monsoon is going to be normal this year. "It is difficult to predict the exact date. But according to our calculations, the monsoon should arrive in Mumbai in the first week of June," said S Venkateswara Rao, assistant meteorologist, Hyderabad.

The MeT official said that the heating up of the land mass and oceans started early this year and so the cloud formations also began early this year.

There have been certain locations in the south west where there has been scattered rainfall already. With these developments, the monsoon might just come as early as the end of May.

Meanwhile, the mercury level has descended in many places in the three regions. Except in Nizamabad and Ramagundam, the maximum day temperature reported were between 25 degree Celsius and 38 degree Celsius.

In Hyderabad, the maximum day temperature observed was 36 degree Celsius while the minimum was 23.4 degree Celsius.
