KATHMANDU, July 15: Monsoon will continue to remain active for some more days in the country, as low-pressure area still remains in the Tarai, said the Metrological Forecasting Division. The low-pressure area may start advancing towards India from coming Wednesday, thus weakening monsoon comparatively, said meteorologist Ganga Nagarkoti.

Today, there is the possibility of heavy rain in eastern, mid and western parts of the country, said the Division advising people to stay alert as flooded rivers may rage anytime flooding downstream settlements. There may be obstruction of air and road transportation as well due to rains and low visibility, it said.

Likewise, it has also sounded caution as the water level in major rivers like Rapti, Babai, Karnali and Mahakali can increase. The water level in the Kulekhani Hydropower Project reservoir has reached the limit.
