association with the western disturbances which have their origin in the Mediterranean generally do occur during these months.

 Spring (March-May) or Pre Monsoon: During March to May, the country experiences occasional pre-monsoon thunder shower activity associated with thermal convection due to increasing insulation combined with the orographic effect. An occasional hailstorm also occurs during these months. The pre-monsoon precipitation activities are more frequent in the hilly regions rather than the southern plain of Terai region. Day time temperature in the southern plains of the country even reaches beyond 40°C.
