Kathmandu, 17 July : The Meteorological Forecasting Division has predicted that there was very low possibility of heavy rainfall for the next three to four days. This is because the low pressure system, which causes rain has shifted towards the south. The monsoon low pressure trough has shifted towards south from the Tarai belt of Nepal, shared meteorologist Ganga Nagarkoti. Such condition does not mean that there will not be rain at all. Since monsoon will be active in Nepal until the third week of September, light to moderate rainfall will occur from time to time. She further said that the prospect of torrential rain for few days throughout the country was very negligible. According to the Division, the weather tonight throughout the country will remain partial to normal cloudy. However light to moderate rain could take place in some places.
