The Maximum Temperature yesterday increased over large areas of Saurashtra, Gujarat & Kutch. The Hot Centers all were above 44.0 C

As per IMD:

In view of the enhanced cloudiness, strengthening of westerlies and persistent cyclonic circulation in lower & mid-tropospheric levels over Lakshadweep area and neighbouhood, the southwest monsoon has further advanced into some more parts of south Arabian Sea, most parts of Lakshadweep area , some parts of Kerala & south Tamilnadu, remaining parts of Maldives – Comorin area, some more parts of southwest, southeast & Eastcentral Bay of Bengal and some parts of northeast Bay of Bengal. Thus the southwest monsoon has set in over Kerala, today, the 8th June 2019.

Northern Limit of Monsoon (NLM) passes through Lat. 11°N/Long. 60°E, Lat. 11°N/Long. 70°E, Amini Divi, Kochi, Madurai, Lat. 11°N/Long. 86°E, Lat.
16°N/Long. 91°E and Lat. 20°N/Long. 94°E.

Conditions are favorable for further advance of Southwest Monsoon into remaining parts of South Arabian Sea, Lakshadweep area & Kerala, some more parts of Tamilnadu, southwest, southeast, east-central & northeast Bay of Bengal and some parts of central Arabian Sea and west-central Bay of Bengal during next 48 hours.

Conditions are also becoming favorable for advance of southwest monsoon into some parts of Northeastern states during the same period.

The east-west shear zone now runs roughly along Lat. 11°N between 2.1 & 3.1 km above mean sea level across extreme South peninsula.

The off shore trough from south Maharashtra coast to Kerala coast persists.

The Cyclonic Circulation over Southeast Arabian Sea & adjoining Lakshadweep area off North Kerala coast now lies over Lakshadweep area & adjoining Southeast Arabian Sea extending up to 4.5 km above mean sea level. Under its influence, a low pressure area is very likely to form over Southeast and adjoining Eastcentral Arabian Sea during next 48 hours. It is likely to move North-Northwestwards and intensify gradually.

Forecast 8th June to 13th June 2019

For Saurashtra, Gujarat & Kutch – Potential Low Pressure System Over SE Araian Sea.

The Upper Cyclonic Circulation over Southeast Arabian Sea extends up to 4.5 km. above mean sea level. This potential System is being monitored as 93A.INVEST. Location at noon was Lat. 9.6N & Long. 72.5N. Under the influence of this UAC, a Low Pressure area is expected to develop in the next 24 hours. There is a differing outcome in forecast track by the two main Forecast Models ECMWF and GFS, although both show that the Low Pressure will gain strength in the up coming days. Windy Map of the potential System is shows the outcome on 13th June morning, both for ECMWF and GFS. Further update will be given on Monday the 10th June 2019. Pre-monsoon activity could occur over South Gujarat and Coastal Saurashtra during the later parts of forecast period. Temperature over Saurashtra, Gujarat & Kutch is expected to remain high but with marginal decline. Humidity will increase during the forecast period.
