KATHMANDU: This year’s monsoon has entered the country from eastern Nepal.

According to the Meteorological Forecasting Division, this year’s monsoon entered the country via the eastern part of Koshi State.

June 13 is a tentative date for the arrival of monsoon and this year, it made its presence three days earlier. It will be advanced gradually to other parts of the country.

The Meteorological Forecasting Division has provided an optimistic yet cautious forecast for this year’s monsoon season.

According to their predictions, the rainfall this year is expected to be significantly higher than the average.

Specifically, the forecasts indicate that Nepal could receive 35 to 55 percent more rainfall than usual.

This increase in rainfall can have both positive and negative implications for various sectors across the country.

However, there are also concerns about the potential adverse effects of excessive rainfall. The risk of flooding and landslides becomes pronounced with higher-than-average precipitation.
