Meteorologist Krishna Manandhar said it snowed for about 45 minutes in Katmandu, but it did not accumulate on the ground because the temperature was not below freezing.
Manandhar said the snow was due to continuous winter rains, which started Tuesday.

Poor visibility due to the rains and fog also forced most domestic flights to be canceled or delayed, according to the Civil Aviation Authority of Nepal.
