The active impact of the monsoon wind and the presence of the monsoon low-pressure system near the Tarai region are causing light to moderate rainfall in most parts of the country, according to the Department of Hydrology and Meteorology’s Meteorological Forecasting Division.
The Division has advised taking extra precautions since heavy rain, thunder, and lightning are possible in several areas of Province No. 1, Province No. 2, Bagmati province, Lumbini province, and Gandaki province.
In the hilly regions of these provinces, there is a risk of landslides, soil erosion, and mudflow, according to the report. The water level in rivers, rivulets, and seasonal streams may rise, disrupting daily life as well as transportation services, according to the Division.
