KATHMANDU, Aug 15: Rainfall in almost all parts of the country has been predicted for the coming three days. Meteorologist at the Department of Hydrology and Meteorology, Raju Pradhanang said that the countrywide rainfall was forecast in the wake of the monsoon low pressure belt being near Nepal.
As the pressure belt is stronger in the western part of Nepal, it would cause more rainfall there than in the eastern part of the country, he added.
With general weather change across the country, it is currently raining in some parts of Province 1, Bagmati Province, Gandaki Province, Karnali Province and Sudur Paschim Province. Bagmati Province, Gandaki Province and Province 5 will have heavy rainfall this afternoon.
