The met office forecast did not mention the chance of very heavy rainfall in the country in their 24-hour weather forecast
The monsoon rainfall, which is on a decreasing trend is likely to continue for the next three days, according to Bangladesh Meteorological Department (BMD).
“There will be less rainfall in the next three days compared to the previous few days [this season]. Rainfall has also decreased in Bangladesh catchment (India),” said Abdul Mannan, a meteorologist at the BMD.
“We divide heavy rainfall into three parts: moderately heavy, heavy, and very heavy. For the last few days, there has been heavy to very heavy rainfall in most parts of Bangladesh. But the frequency and intensity of the rain will decrease. In the next few days, very heavy rainfall may occur in a couple of areas. Some places may face heavy rainfall, and some places may face moderately heavy rainfall,” he added.
“There will be no random rainfall in the country in the next few days. Rain may come for some time, but will not last for long. People will be able to resume regular work after rain,” Mannan said.
The met office forecast did not mention very heavy rainfall in the country in their 24-hour weather forecast. Only Rangpur may face rainfall in most places.
In their 24-hour forecast published at 9am on Thursday, the met office said light to moderate rain or thunder showers accompanied by temporary gusty wind is likely to occur at most places over Rangpur division; at many places over Mymensingh, Sylhet and Chattogram divisions; and at a few places over Dhaka, Khulna, Rajshahi and Barisal divisions with moderately heavy to heavy rainfall at places.
Temperature may rise due to sunshine in many places. However, the monsoon will remain fairly active over Bangladesh and moderately over the north side of the Bay of Bengal.
