2021 Jun 12, 21:45, Kathmandu

The monsoon that entered Province 1, 2 and Bagmati Province from Friday has made its way to Gandaki and Lumbini Provinces from Saturday, according to the Meteorological Forecasting Division under the Department of Hydrology and Meteorology.

In a day or two, the monsoon will enter the Western region, according to MFD. The Division has issued an alert as there is a possibility of light to moderate rainfall in many places of the country after the monsoon becomes active in the next week.

Generally, the monsoon starts on June 13 and exits on October 2 in Nepal. Most places of the country may receive more rainfall than average during the monsoon, said the South Asian Climate Outlook Forum.

There is an impact of a low-pressure belt from the northwestern Bay of Bengal and surrounding areas in the country’s east and central area and of a mix of westerly and local winds in the western areas.

As a result, the country received rainfall on Saturday following a partial or normal change in the weather, said the Division. On Saturday evening, the whole country may receive scanty or moderate rain in many places following a normal or complete change in the weather.
