According to meteorologist Nirajan Sapkota, the rainfall has been witnessed in some parts of all seven provinces today and it could continue in most parts in all provinces particularly in Province 2, Bagmati Province, Gandaki Province and Province 5.
The Division has cautioned that heavy rainfall could occur in some parts from Monday morning as monsoon would be more active. Sapkota added that the rainfall more than average has been recorded in the year 2020 in the country.
