Monsoon expected to enter Nepal on June 13

KATHMANDU: This year’s monsoon is expected to enter Nepal from June 13.

The monsoon has reached India’s north-eastern territory, Bangladesh, Bhutan and reached Sikkim in India, according to the weather forecast division under the Department of Hydrology and Meteorology.

Rojan Lamichhane, meteorologist of the division, said that monsoon will enter Nepal around June 13 and that there is a 35 to 55 percent chance of more than normal rainfall in most parts of the country during the monsoon.

Climate expert Dr Dharmaraj Upreti said that this year’s monsoon reached India’s Assam, Sikkim and surrounding areas last Saturday. Hence, it can be estimated that the monsoon will enter the Koshi region a week earlier than the scheduled date.

Since the monsoon air has become more active, it can be assumed that the monsoon will be active in the next three to five days in Koshi Province.
