KATHMANDU, May 2:The influence of the Westerly wind spurred cloudy conditions and brought precipitation across the country on Monday.
A low pressure that has developed in areas around Haryana of India due to the influence of the Westerly wind and a low pressure belt from Bihar to Odisha triggered rainfall in Nepal, meteorologist Samir Shrestha told the RSS.
This system that began since Sunday is moving towards east and an improvement in the weather system is expected from Wednesday.
According to Meteorological Forecasting Division, skies in the far-western and central-region will become clear from Monday afternoon while the capital and the eastern region are expected to see improvement in the weather system by the evening.
However, eastern Nepal will continue to come under the influence of Westerly wind Tuesday, too and will see rainfall coupled with thunder in the day time.
Though this system has been in existence for the past three/four days, its impact in Nepal was seen only from Sunday.
According to the Division, Simara witnessed the maximum rainfall in the past 24 hours.
Its record was 16 millimeters while Dang recorded 14 mm, Biratnagar 10 mm and the Kathmandu Valley received 4 mm rainfall in this period. RSS
