Westerly wind brings rainfall across country
May 2, 2017-
Westerly wind caused cloudy conditions across the country with most of the parts receiving rainfall on Monday.
A low pressure system developed in the 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 said. The system that began Sunday is moving towards east and an improvement in the weather system is expected from Wednesday.
According to Meteorological Forecasting Division, the skies in the far-western and central-region became clearer in the afternoon while the Capital and the eastern region saw improvement in the weather system in the evening.
However, according to weathermen, eastern Nepal will continue to be under the influence of the Westerly wind on Tuesday as well, hence rainfall, coupled with thunderstorm, is expected.
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 MFD, Simara witnessed maximum rainfall in the past 24
hours (16mm) followed by Dang (14mm), Biratnagar (10 mm) and the Kathmandu Valley (4 mm).
