Normal life has been affected in the Kathmandu Valley after the temperature went down to 4 degree Celsius on Monday morning.

This is the record low temperature of the year so far. It was 5 degree Celsius on Sunday morning.

According to Meteorological Forecasting Division (MFD), the westerly wind and the wind from south-east Arabian Sea are blowing into Nepal.  It is likely to bring changes in the weather patterns in Nepal with chances of light rain and snowfall in the high hilly and mountainous region.

The weather will remain clear in the Tarai region and generally cloudy in the other parts of the country during the day, according to Nirajan Sapkota, a meteorologist.
