The Meteorological Forecasting Division (MFD) has announced the end of monsoon in Nepal for this year.
Monsoon in Nepal usually begins mid-June and ends by mid-September. However, this year Nepal experienced the longest monsoon in four decades, lasting for 125 days. The clear sky of Dashain was dark and grey because of the impact of Cyclone Phailin that started from the Bay of Bengal.
“This year's monsoon has completely withdrawn from the country as of today. The existing weather in the country is associated with western disturbance,” MFD said, issuing a special weather bulletin.
Total rainfall recorded this month was 95.4 mm.
MFD has warned that there is possibility of brief thundershowers in selected regions but the weather will improve in next 1-2 days.
