Kathmandu, February 15

The influence of the westerly wind on the country’s weather will remain for some more days.

The weather is partly to generally cloudy in most parts of the country since some days back with light snowfall in some places of the high hilly and mountainous regions.

Meteorologist Shanti Kandel says this system will have its impact on the weather for two or three more days.

However, rainfall has not occurred as the westerly is weak and it does not have adequate moisture to be able to cause precipitation. The weather will be partly to generally cloudy throughout the country towards the afternoon today with chances of light snowfall in some places of the high-hilly and mountainous region as well as of light rainfall at one or two places of the hilly region, the Department of Hydrology and Meteorology says.

The weather update shared by the Meteorological Forecasting Division shows the Kathmandu valley recorded minimum temperature of 7.8 degrees Celsius and maximum temperature of 22.6 degrees Celsius in the last 24 hours.
