Rain/Snow Advisory

Deep depression has formed over the Southeast Bay of Bengal which is very likely to intensify into tropical cyclone during the next 24 hours.

The cyclone may not directly impact Bhutan. However, under the influence of the system, moderate to heavy rain is likely in the Southern and Eastern parts of the country during 17th - 18th December, while the rest of the country is likely to receive light to moderate rainfall.

Snowfall is also likely over the high land areas of elevation above 3000 meters during this period.  

Weather is expected to improve from 19th December with partly cloudy outlook across the country.

Updates will be issued if there are any changes in the forecast.
