Kathmandu: The pre-monsoon spell has commenced in Nepal recently with winter coming to an end. The winter this time was less cold and brought little rainfall than estimated. Although the pre-monsoon period started from last Friday with the termination of winter, it will take some days more for the pre-monsoon to become fully active, according to the Department of Hydrology and Meteorology. Today's cloudy weather is the first such case after the onset of the pre-monsoon period, sad Rojan Lamichhane, a meteorologist at the Meteorological Forecasting Division. He said the recent cloudy weather is mainly due to the Westerly wind and the moisture-laden wind from the Arabian Sea. According to him, the weather is much cloudy in Lumbini, Bagmati, Gandaki and Karnali provinces while it is less cloudy in the Sudurpaschim, Koshi and Madhes provinces at present. He further said the latter provinces will also witness cloudy conditions as the clouds have been advancing towards these provinces. This trend will increase un til tonight and the weather will improve gradually from tomorrow. Meteorologist Lamichhane shared that the western region will witness more cloudy condition tonight. Kathmandu is receiving light rainfall since the morning today. November 2, 2023 to February 29, 2024 was the winter period this year. Although winter is gone, the influence of Westerly wind still remains, according to the Division. Source: National News Agency Nepal
