Brace for showers in next 24 hours!

Expect a brief reprieve from the sweltering summer heat, as the weatherman has predicted rain or thunder showers in parts of Bangladesh in the next 24 hours.

“The showers are likely to occur at one or two places over Rajshahi, Rangpur, Mymensingh, Dhaka and Sylhet divisions and the region of Cumilla,” the Bangladesh Meteorology Department said in a weather bulletin on Friday.

“Weather may remain mainly dry with partly cloudy sky elsewhere over the country,” the department said.

However, a mild heat wave is currently sweeping over Khulna division and the districts of Gopalgonj, Rangamati, Chandpur, Moulvibazar, Rajshahi, Barishal & Patuakhali may continue, the bulletin said.

Day and night temperatures may remain nearly unchanged over the country.

The maximum temperature was recorded at 38 degrees Celsius in Jashore in the past 24 hours, the bulletin said.
