KATHMANDU, June 19: Meteorologists have said that the monsoons, which have been active for a few days, will not subside immediately. A meteorologist at the Institute of Hydrology and Meteorology, Shanti Kandel, said that since the monsoons entered the country and became active from the start of this year, it is unlikely to weaken anytime soon.
“Since the monsoons have reached an active state this year, their influence will continue for a few more days, so the rainfall trend will continue for a few more days,” she said.
However, in their opinion, the effects of the monsoon wind will wear off after a few days. It rains nonstop due to the monsoons, which became active three days before the usual date this year.
The Met Department said the weather is now partially to generally cloudy across the country, with light rains occurring in the country’s hilly region, including Province 1 and Sudurpaschim Province, due to the monsoon winds.
It is generally to fully cloudy across the country today, with light to moderate rain in many places. Heavy rains and thunder may occur in some places in Province 1 and Gandaki, Lumbini and Bagmati Provinces this afternoon.
The Ministry has therefore called for precautionary measures in these areas. The ministry announced that this precipitation trend will continue on Sunday and Monday.
