The mercury has started to drop as the winter has come in Bangladesh.


The lowest temperature of this season was recorded 11.5-degree Celsius in Chuadanga and Rajshahi Thursday.


“Chuadanga has started to feel the bite of the winter season as a cold blast of air has settled in the district,” Rakibul Hasan, in-charge of Chuadanga meteorological office, said.


The chilly weather is disrupting daily life, forcing people to stay indoors and causing woes for low-income people.
