Weathermen attribute the change to the impact of the westerly low pressure

Nov 17, 2017-Several parts of the country on Thursday witnessed a sudden weather change with overcast skies and drop in temperatures.

Weathermen attributed the change to the impact of the westerly low pressure. The westerly low pressure system and the low pressure area in the Bay of Bengal affected the weather of the country, said meteorologist Subash Rimal. 

Kathmandu denizens on Thursday woke up to a nippy morning with the overcast skies. Waves originating from the snowfall affected areas in Uttarakhand and Jammu Kashmir Himalayan region of India are likely to bring the temperatures down, Rimal said. The impact of the low pressure system is likely to continue for a day or two, according to Rimal. 

The weather office has said there are chances of sporadic rainfall in some parts of the eastern and central regions and some areas of the western hilly region. Kathmandu recorded minimum temperature of 10 degrees Celsius and maximum temperature of 23 degrees Celsius on Thursday. Jumla was the coldest with one degree Celsius. Simra recorded 31 degrees Celsius.
