KATHMANDU, AUGUST 24
The weather is expected to take few more days to improve due to the monsoon wind, according to the Department of Hydrology and Meteorology.
Monsoon is still active due to the moisture-laden wind coming from the Bay of Bengal, according to the Department.
According to senior meteorologist Barun Poudel, by the looks of current weather conditions, there was no sign of improvement in the weather.
"Rather the monsoon will be more active from Wednesday onwards," he said.

Heavy rainfall coupled with thunderstorms are expected in some places of these provinces while some places in other provinces have been witnessing light to moderate rainfall at this moment, it has been said.
