Current weather in Kathmandu

I land in Kathmandu on Friday (very exciting!) and am about to start packing. I have been watching the daily temperature and see it's consistently about 20C, but I would like an opinion from someone who's actually there re clothing needed for a sightseeing-only trip - no trekking. e.g. during the day - shorts and T shirts? 3/4 pants? or jeans and jumpers? Sandals? or shoes and socks?

Evenings - jeans and jumper? warm coat?

Is it windy there at the moment and what is the chance of rain? I'm coming from Australia where the temp has been 30C - 40C + in the past month, so it's difficult to think about what 20C feels like!

I have plenty of luggage allowance but want to travel lightly.

Any opinions gratefully received. Thankyou.

Settle, United...

2. Re: Current weather in Kathmandu

right now no rain!!!!

mornings and evening 2-5 Deg C, mid day mid 20s

light jacket or a coat and a decent trouser in the mornging and evenings -

a light fleece jacket would be ideal

day times - light colthing will do

since most of the places have no centralized heat, nights could be bit on a chilly side depending on where you are staying

even if you forget to bring something ktm has loads and loads of shops with ourddoor gears - all in very small walkable area in Thamel - so no worries

even the fake ones there are made for trekking and outdoors hence will be better bang for your buck than your average colthing bought at a dept stores
