In this photo by Channi Anand, a man walks with his cycle through a water-logged street as it rains in Jammu, India. The heavy rains lashing the city brought much-needed relief from a scorching heat wave. Temperatures exceeding 40 Celsius (104 Fahrenheit) on Sunday dropped by 3 degrees on Monday in the city. The monsoon reaches far northern Jammu and Kashmir state later than most of the nation, around July 1, according to the India Meteorological Department. It forecast scattered and isolated rainfall in the region for the rest of the week.
