NEW DELHI: Monsoon rains are expected to hit Kerala coast around June 7-8, the country’s weather office said on Sunday even as farmers have started preparing land for summer crop planting.

In the past few days, monsoon clouds have become stronger over Bay of Bengal and they moved towards the subcontinent on June 3 and 4 after remaining static for some days. Several parts of south and central India are already getting good rains.

In its forecast for the next 24-48 hours, India Meteorological Department (IMD) said heavy rain will cover parts of northeast and south India.
