A sudden active monsoon trough that plays a vital role in the contribution of rainfall is expected to bring heavy rains in some places of the West for the next couple of days, according to weather forecast.

A special bulletin released by Meteorological Forecasting Division (MFD) warned of potential risks of flash flooding and landslides in one or two places in  the country due to heavy downpours on Saturday night and that is expected to continue for a couple of days.

“The sufficient moisture inflow from Bay of Bengal is causing widespread but intermittent rainfall activity throughout the country.

This condition is likely to persist for next one to two days and then the weather will gradually improve in the western region of the country,” the bulletin reads.

On Saturday, Biratnagar received the highest rainfall measuring 74.6 millimetres, followed by Pokhara, Okhaldhunga, Dhankuta, Kathmandu and Lumle measuring at 52, 43.8, 34.7, 34.5 and 32 millimetres respectively.
