By Narayan Dhungana, KATHMANDU:- Heavy rain has been caused due to activation of two weather systems at once, meteorologists said. Abrupt changes in the weather have adversely affected diverse sectors across the country.
Nepal has recently witnessed the joint impacts of low pressure system active in Bay of Bengal and Central India now moving to the North side and the westerly wind system.
Senior meteorologist Raju Pradhananga told RSS that the systems have caused heavy rain. It will have impact up to Thursday morning, he said. The weather will gradually open from Thursday afternoon. The system was active since October 17.
