KATHMANDU, July 14: Rainfall has shifted toward the western and mid-western plains of the country from Saturday, according to Min Kumar Aryal, a meteorologist at the Meteorological Forecasting Division.

“The rainfall has weakened in most parts of the eastern and central Nepal but it has shifted toward the mid-western and western Tarai,” he said.

The division recorded 311 milliliters of rainfall in Simara on Friday which is almost 40 percent of the total rainfall the district witnessed in a month.
