Well 2nd june another disturbance is expected. It may be a feeble one, but even few inches of snow can mean no manali leh opening this week too!

Its actually simple.
Look at this image below
White patches are clouds. Greyish patches are scattered clouds. The thicker the clouds, the more chance of rainfall/snowfall

Is that the monsoon building up in the SW ? And it looks like very dense cloud over Bengal area? Does that mean monsoon starting there?
Probably so. But I believe that to be more of a cyclone buildup than the monsoon clouds. BTW Monsoon has officially started from today at the Kerala coastal belts.

monsoon has broken over kerala. As for the satellite image, it will update automatically every hour or so.

The European weather agencies are at slight variance with IMD about the progress of the SW monsoon - they feel that the 2nd June westerly disturbance will re-direct the monsoon onslaught to the Saurashtra coast in an intense form.

A cyclone alert has already been sounded for 2/3rd june for Gujarat. Hope the storm doesn't intensify a lot, but am afraid lookin at the pictures :(
