The monsoon would become more active beginning Saturday. In a bulletin issued today, the Department of Hydrology and Meteorology stated that light to moderate rain is expected in most parts of the country due to the possibility of the development of a monsoon low-pressure system near Nepal’s Terai region from Saturday to Monday, as well as moisture-laden wind from the Bay of Bengal and the Arabian Sea.
Similarly, heavy rain will fall in some areas of Sudurpaschim, Karnali, and Lumbini provinces, as well as in some areas of the remaining provinces. The Department has urged everyone to take the necessary precautions due to the risk of landslides in hilly areas and flooding in Terai areas.
The sky has now remained cloudy throughout the country, and some parts of Province No. 1, Province No. 2, Bagmati, Gandaki, and Lumbini provinces, as well as one or two parts of the remaining provinces, have been experiencing light to moderate rain.
On Saturday, light to moderate rainfall is expected in most parts of the country, with heavy rain expected in parts of Sudurpaschim, Lumbini, and Gandaki provinces.
According to the Meteorological Forecasting Division, Kathmandu Valley received 2.2 millimeters of rain today.
