Kathmandu, February 2

Currently, the country witnesses the partial impact of the westerly wind. As the impact is likely to get more intense on Thursday, flights might be affected on Thursday due to poor visibility, according to meteorologists.

The Meteorological Forecasting Division says the westerly wind that is entering from western Nepal tonight is likely to trigger the light to moderate thundershowers and snowfall for the next three days. This atmospheric condition may have implications on aviation, mountaineering, agriculture, transport sectors and people’s daily life.

Due to the weather change, cold is likely to rise and the division has urged all to take precautionary measures against it.

Tonight, the weather will be partly to generally cloudy in Province 1, Bagmati, Gandaki and Lumbini provinces and generally to mostly cloudy in Karnali and Sudurpaschim. The environment in the Madhes province is highly likely to remain fair.

There will be generally too fully cloudy sikes across the country on Friday and on Saturday. On Friday, there is a possibility of a light to moderate snowfall at a few places of high-hills and mountainous regions.

The impact of the Westerly wind will continue on Saturday, too, and the weather is likely to improve from Sunday.
