Description In wintertime (December-March), Nepal receives less amount of precipitation compared to summer. The winter precipitation system in Nepal is linked to the atmospheric variables associated with western disturbances. Additionally, this study covers larger-scale atmospheric circulation over the Indian and Pacific Oceans. The winter precipitation variability was found to be inflated by the westerly circulation passing through western Asia and moist air from the Arabian Sea. The winter precipitation (dryness) was related with positive (negative) Dipole Mode Index (DMI) and negative (positive) Southern Oscillation Index (SOI) with comparable correlations of about 0.4. Both DMI and Sea Surface Temperature (SST) of Indian Ocean revealed that they are in agreement with excess and deficit wintertime precipitation over Nepal. Key Words:
