A heat wave may occur in monsoon albeit for a shorter duration as in the pre-monsoon season, the Authority said, urging all to stay alert to the potential atmospheric adversity.

In this monsoon, rainfall less than average has been predicted and it happens, hotter days than overage is likely, according to Authority chief executive officer Anil Pokhrel. Under this situation, agricultural productions are likely to drop this year.
