Wet summer

India is experiencing some strange weather. At this time of year, rains are like a snowstorm in hell. But since uesterday, west and north india received unseasonal showers along with lightning and thunder.
Today Mumbai, usually above 32 C at this time, woke up to a cool morning and overcast sky. By 8:30 AM it started to drizzle accompanied by lightning. Office goers were caught unaware and most of them got wet since they were not carrying any umbrellas.
At the time of writing, it is still overcast and and sporadic showers reported. Right after noon, it rained and now though subsided, still going on.
Wonder does it have something to do with global warming and climatic patterns like la nino. Or just some depression in bay of bengal?
