Kathmandu, May 31: The Meteorological Department has issued a cautionary notice to the public due to ongoing heat waves across various regions of the country. For the past few days, temperatures have soared to 40 degrees Celsius or higher in some areas of the Terai region, particularly in the Far West and Lumbini regions.
