Kathmandu, June 12
The Department of Hydrology and Meteorology has said that monsoon is yet to become fully active nationwide. The Department had announced the arrival of monsoon in the country on June 8.
According to Meteorologist Barun Poudel, monsoon has been active in some areas of eastern and central Nepal. “It is likely to take some more days to move from east to westward and become fully active.”
The central part continues to witness rains at night. Likewise, rainfall has been forecast in surroundings of the Kathmandu Valley and eastern region this evening.
Though monsoon is active in the eastern part, maximum rainfall is measured at 45 millimetres on average. There is seemingly no possibility of water-induced disasters for some days as heavy rainfall is yet to occur in the disaster-prone areas.
Monsoon in Nepal tentatively begins on June 10.
