Weather to Improve Gradually from Saturday: Meteorological Forecasting Division

February 23: Sporadic rainfall is likely to occur at some places across the country today due to the partial impact of the westerly low pressure system (also known as western disturbance) in the weather.

According to the Meteorological Forecasting Division under the Department of Hydrology and Meteorology, the weather in the hill region of the country, especially in Koshi Province, is mostly cloudy at present but is expected to remain clear from Saturday.    

The weather in the Kathmandu Valley has been clear from early morning today after rainfall on Thursday evening.    
The division has forecast that the weather shall remain partly to generally cloudy in the hill areas of Koshi and Gandaki provinces; partly cloudy in the hill regions of Bagmati, Karnali and Sudur Pashchim provinces and mainly fair in the rest of the country.

"Light rain is possible at one or two places of the hill regions of Koshi and Gandaki provinces," according to the division.    
Likewise, there are chances of light snowfall at a few places of the high hills and mountainous regions today.    

On Thursday, international flights to and from Tribhuvan International Airport were affected due to bad weather in Kathmandu. An aircraft belonging to Indian Indigo Airlines was diverted to Lucknow, India after it could not land at Tribhuvan International Airport on Thursday afternoon following unfavourable weather condition, said TIA Spokesperson Subas Jha.    
However, domestic flights were operating despite the bad weather, although there were some delays, he added. International flights resumed after the rainfall subsided on Thursday night. -- RSS
