Monsoon activities have started in the country since the past week.

Moisture-laden winds originating from the Bay of Bengal and westerly winds have resulted in a change in the weather conditions causing rainfall, according to the Weather Forecasting Division. As a result, many parts of the country are experiencing adverse weather conditions.

“The change in the weather and occurrence of rain is a result of the pre-monsoon becoming active for the past five days,” meteorologist Barun Poudel said, adding that the condition will continue for a few more days.

Many parts of the country experienced a change in the weather and light rainfall on Thursday. Pre-monsoon in Nepal is usually active from March to May, and pre-monsoon rains from June 10 to September 23, but alters at times.

The maximum and minimum temperatures of Kathmandu Valley on Thursday stood at 27 and 16 degrees Celsius respectively, according to the division.
