Bangladesh: More showers likely in 24 hrs

More light to moderate showers are likely to drench Bangladesh in the next 24 hours, the weather department said on Wednesday.


Light to moderate rains or thunder showers accompanied by temporary gusty winds and lighting flashes are likely to occur at many places over Rangpur, Khulna, Sylhet and Mymensingh divisions, according to the weather bulletin.


Also showers are likely to occur at a few places over Chattogram, Barishal, Dhaka and Rajshahi divisions with moderately heavy to heavy falls at isolated places over the country, it said.


The low pressure area formed over the westcentral Bay and adjoining northwest Bay now lies over the westcentral Bay and adjoining Andhra coast, said the forecast.


The axis of monsoon trough runs through Bihar, West Bengal to Assam across central Bangladesh. Monsoon is fairly active over Bangladesh and moderate to strong elsewhere over the North Bay, it said.


During the period, day and night temperature may remain nearly unchanged over the country.
