‘Clear skies from today’

After rain and thunderstorm on Monday the country should see clear skies by Tuesday, according to the weather reports.

Subash Rimal, meteorologist at the Meteorological Forecasting Division, said the rainfall was the result of vapour-filled westerly wind from the Arabian Sea.

“The westerly wind shrouded all over the country,” said Rimal, adding that the weather is expected to clear up from Tuesday morning as the westerly wind gradually moves eastwards. Heavy winds, light rain and thunderstorm are regular phenomena during the pre-monsoon, said Rimal. Monsoon normally starts in Nepal in the second week of June and lasts until late September.

A few domestic and international flights into the Capital were briefly affected due to thick fog and thunder shower, said the Tribhuvan International Airport officials.
