Department of Meteorology forecasts heat wave in Tarai, urges alertness


KATHMANDU – The Department of Hydrology and Meteorology has urged for alertness, saying there is possibility of excessive heat in the Tarai region based on an analysis of temperature condition throughout the country in the coming few days.

The Meteorological Forecasting Division under the Department has urged one and all for necessary preparedness and alertness as the temperature is likely to increase. Meteorologist Binu Maharjan said that heat is predicted to intensify especially in Tarai and in Sudurpaschim and Lumbini provinces.

“Necessary precaution is advised, as there is the possibility of hot wind and heat wave in the Tarai region until June 10,” the Department said.

Before this, the highest temperature of 44.2 degrees Celsius, this year’s highest, was recorded in Nepalgunj. Similarly, Dhangadhi recorded 44.1 degrees Celsius temperature.

The weather is presently partly cloudy in the hilly parts and clear in the rest of the country. This is due to the effect of local and westerly winds and low pressure area formed around Bihar, India, says the Department of Hydrology and Meteorology.

Later this afternoon, the weather will remain partial and generally cloudy in the hilly parts of Koshi and Bagmati and Gandaki and clear in the remaining parts of the country. There is a possibility of light to moderate rain with thunder and lightning at some places in the hilly parts of Bagmati, Gandaki and Koshi province. There is also possibility of storm in some places of Lumbini, Karnali and Sudurpaschim Province.
