Light to moderate rain, thundershowers likely

Bangladesh Meteorological Department (BMD) on Tuesday forecast rain and thundershowers for parts of the country in the next 24 hours starting 6pm today.


“Light to moderate rain or thundershowers is likely to occur at one or two places over Rajshahi, Mymensingh, Dhaka, Khulna, Barishal, Chattogram and Sylhet divisions with moderately heavy falls at isolated places over the country,” a Met Office bulletin said.


The weather may remain mainly dry with temporary partly cloudy sky elsewhere over the country.


The deep depression over the West central Bay and adjoining area moved North/ Northwestwards and crossed the North Andhra Pradesh coast, BMD said.


It is likely to move North/Northwesterly direction and weaken gradually.


The axis of monsoon trough runs through Bihar, West Bengal to Assam across the central part of Bangladesh. Monsoon is less active over Bangladesh and moderate over the North Bay, it added.


Day and night temperature may fall slightly all over the country.


The sun will rise in the capital at 5:56am tomorrow and set at 5:33pm.
