Kathmandu: Monsoon will remain active across the country for three more days.

Meteorologist Manju Basi says the monsoon is forecast to be active for three more days as the low-pressure system appears close to the Terai region of Nepal.

 “Heavy rain is likely in the next three days at some parts in Province No. 1, Bagmati, Gandaki and Lumbini,” she said. During this period, the duration of night rainfall will be possibly longer than the daytime rains.

Rainfall is said to be longer at night than during the day in this period.

Heavy rainfall has been predicted at some parts of Province No. 1, Bagmati, Gandaki and Lumbini. In this backdrop,   the Department of Hydrology and Meteorology has called for taking necessary precautions as the water level in rivers and streams may rise and due to the possible risk of soil erosion, landslides and mudslides in hilly areas.

In the afternoon, there is a possibility of light to moderate rain in some places across the country with generally to fully cloudy and a thundershower has been forecast at a few places of Province 1, Bagmati and Gandaki.
