On Tuesday, the temperature in the valley recorded a sharp drop after several parts of the country experienced heavy rain and snowfall.  Monday’s rain, this year’s second winter rain brought the mercury down to 14 degrees Celsius Tuesday, recording a sharp drop of 11 degrees  Celsius from last week’s  constant maximum temperature of 25 degrees.

The change in weather has been attributed to westerly disturbance. This year’s second winter rain which started on Monday from the west is expected to last till Wednesday as per the Meteorological Forecasting Division.

Monday night also saw heavy seasonal snowfall in the Dhaulagiri highlands, and parts of Jajarkot district.  In Mustang, over 1.5 feet of snow had reportedly piled up in fields ,disrupting life in high altitude areas of Mustang- Chhoser, Chonhup, Lomantahng, Ghami, Charang, Surang, Jomsom, Tukuche and Marpha,  and Dhorpatan of Baglung where the snow has disrupted operation of a micro-hydro plant.

While the snow has affected lives of common people especially old people and children, farmers in the region seem glad for the snow. The snow they say will help boost the harvest of winter crops like wheat, barley and apple. According to Senior Agriculture Development Officer Rewati Poudel, the snowfall is higher this year than last year and helps the crops where there is no irrigation. Tourists are another people enjoying the snow. According to sources at Annapurna Conservation Area Project (ACAP), this is the heaviest snowfall of the year. All the hills around the area are covered in snow.

The snow also disrupted flights on the Pokhara-Mustang route and shut down schools in some region.
