A low over east-central Bay and adjoining west-central area has intensified and is likely to intensify further

The Met office has advised the four maritime ports of the country to hoist local cautionary signal number 3 as squally weather may affect those due to a well-marked low in the Bay of Bengal.

The Bangladesh Meteorological Department (BMD), in a warning message on Thursday morning, advised the maritime ports of Chittagong, Cox's Bazar, Mongla, and Payra to hoist the signal number.

The BMD said the low over east-central Bay and adjoining west-central area has intensified and is likely to intensify further.

Under its influence, deep convection and steep pressure gradients are taking place over north Bay and adjoining areas.

Squally weather may affect the maritime ports, north Bay and adjoining coastal areas of the country, the Met office said.

All fishing boats and trawlers over north Bay have been advised to come close to the coast and proceed with caution till further notice.

They are also advised not to venture into the deep sea, it said.

Meanwhile, in its 24-hour forecast commencing at 9am on Thursday, the BMD said a mild heat wave is sweeping over Rajshahi, Dinajpur, Nilphamari, and Panchagarh and it may abate.  

Light to moderate rain/thunder showers accompanied by temporary gusty wind is likely to occur at most places over Chittagong and Barisal divisions, at many places over Khulna, Dhaka, Mymensingh, and Sylhet divisions, and at a few places over Rajshahi and Rangpur divisions with moderately heavy to heavy falls at places over Khulna, Barisal, Chittagong, and Sylhet divisions, it said.

Day temperature is likely to fall by 1°C to 2°C and night temperature may fall slightly over the country, the forecast added.
