KATHMANDU, Feb 8: The sudden change in weather throughout the country on Wednesday would regress without real implication, according to Meteorological Forecasting Division (MFD).
Thick clouds hovered in the skies of western and central regions of the country on Wednesday. The particularly gloomy weather was caused by moistures carried by the westerly winds, according to the MFD. However, MFD predicts that most of it would be cleared by Thursday.
“The winds carried dry clouds from the northwest. However, it could not establish strong system. As a result, there would be no real impact on the weather,” informed meteorologist Min Kumar Aryal of MFD.
Cloudy weather in the Kathmandu Valley developed around Tuesday night and blocked much of the sunlight throughout Wednesday. The minimum temperature in the valley dropped by around two degrees Celsius, reaching to 6.8 degrees Celsius from 8.5 degrees Celsius a day before on Tuesday.
Despite the cloudy weather, no traces of rain were recorded from across the country. Meteorologist Aryal said the clouds would exit the country from the east, clearing the sky once again.
With the end of the peak of winter, days in the valley are getting warmer. According to MFD, the minor dip in the minimum temperature on Wednesday is not an indication that the temperature would go down in the coming days. Instead, the days would get warmer from Thursday, they informed.
