Rising temperatures in Kathmandu valley with potential for thunderstorms

KATHMANDU: The temperature in Kathmandu Valley continues its upward trend, with maximum temperatures expected to range between 31 and 33 degrees Celsius on Thursday. This follows a significant rise from 28.5 degrees Celsius on Tuesday to 33.3 degrees Celsius on Wednesday.

According to the Department of Hydrology and Meteorology, the current weather patterns show partly to mostly cloudy conditions in the hilly areas, including Koshi and Sudurpaschim Provinces, while the rest of the country remains mostly clear.

The temperature increase and cloud cover are attributed to a combination of local winds, westerly winds, and a low-pressure system located around Bihar, India. These factors are influencing the weather across Nepal, particularly affecting the hilly regions.

For the rest of the day, the weather is expected to remain partly to mostly cloudy in the hilly areas, especially in the Koshi region. The rest of the country will likely experience clear skies. There is also a possibility of light rain accompanied by thunder and lightning in some parts of the Koshi region this afternoon.

Tonight, conditions are predicted to be partly to mostly cloudy in Koshi, Madhesh, Bagmati, and Gandaki Provinces, with clear skies in other regions. Light to moderate rain, along with thunder and lightning, is anticipated in some areas of Koshi, Madhesh, Bagmati, and Gandaki Provinces, and in one or two places in the hilly areas of Lumbini Province.

Looking ahead to the next 24 hours, the forecast indicates a likelihood of light to moderate rain with thunder and lightning in some places across Koshi, Madhesh, Bagmati, and Gandaki Provinces. Additionally, one or two locations in the hilly regions of Lumbini Province may experience similar weather conditions.

The fluctuating temperatures and potential for thunderstorms underline the dynamic weather patterns currently affecting Nepal. Residents in the affected areas are advised to stay informed about weather updates and take necessary precautions.
