Nepal Weather

The clear weather conditions could be short-lived as meteorologists have forecast a change in weather with light rainfall in the days to come.

This is because of the impact of westerly wind, which remains active before and after mosoon.

Meteorologist at the Weather Forecasting Division, Hira Bhattarai, said that temperature had been decreasing in the country for the past few days. The westerly wind is getting active.

“Generally as the monsoon retreats, westerly wind becomes active. So, we are likely to have light rainfall in the hilly areas of Sudurpaschim, Karnali, and Lumbini Provinces on Tuesday and Wednesday," he added.

The westerly wind also brings cold. That means that the country would see rising cold in the days ahead.

This year, the monsoon exited from the provinces of Sudurpaschim, Karnali, Lumbini, Gandaki and Madhes last Saturday while it exited from Province-1 on Sunday.

With the retreat of monsoon, the weather will remain clear across the country for some days.

The minimum temperature was recorded at 12 degrees C while maximum at 26 degrees C in Kathmandu today.
