KATHMANDU, July 26: Monsoon is to become active again from Monday. According to the Department of Hydrology and Meteorology, monsoon trough is coming closer to Nepal's southern plains from Monday night, further triggering the monsoon effect.    

Wind with water vapor from the Arabian Sea is entering the country and there is a chance of light to moderate rainfall in most parts of the country and heavy rainfall at some parts from Monday night, the Meteorological Forecasting Division said. 

The possibilities of increase in river water level, soil erosion and landslide in hilly areas and inundation in settlement having no proper drainage system can not be avoided once monsoon becomes active. The Division has suggested necessary alertness to avoid untoward incidents as it is likely to have its impact on transport services particularly roadways. 

Some parts of the country are likely to receive light to moderate rainfall while heavy rainfall is expected at some parts of Province 1 and Gandaki Province.
