Bangladesh: No respite from rains yet!

Rains will continue to drench Bangladesh, with monsoon being fairly active over the country. That’s the court message from the weatherman.

 

“Light to moderate rains or thunder showers accompanied by temporary gusty winds are likely to occur at a few places over Rangpur, Rajshahi Khulna and Sylhet divisions and at one or two places over Dhaka, Mymensingh, Barishal and Chattogram divisions with moderately heavy falls at isolated places over the country,” the weather department said in its bulletin on Saturday morning.

 

Day and night temperatures may rise slightly over the country.

 

The Met office recorded the highest 68 mm of rainfall in Dimla in the last 24 hours till 6am on Saturday.

 

According to the Bangladesh Meteorological Department, the maximum temperature was recorded in Tetulia at 34.1 degrees and the minimum temperature in Ishwardi at 24.3 degrees.

 

Meanwhile, the well-marked low pressure area over Uttar Pradesh and adjoining areas weakened into a low pressure area over the same region and merged with the monsoon axis.

 

The axis of monsoon trough runs through Rajasthan, Haryana, Uttar Pradesh, Bihar, Gangetic West Bengal to Assam across the central part of Bangladesh.

 

One of its associated troughs extends up to the northwest Bay, as per the bulletin.
