The monsoon hit the areas of Maharashtra a few days ago, however, it hasn’t taken its full form in the state yet. The on-and-off drizzling in the state has brought some relief from the summer heat, however, the complete monsoon is yet to take place. The cloudy sky since past few days has kept the temperature under check in Mumbai and other various parts of the state, however, the rainfall is missing from taking its original shape.
