More rainfalls are expected over different parts of the country, including Dhaka, in the next 48 hours starting at 10am as the depression over the central part of the Bay of Bengal intensified into a well-marked low.

Bangladesh Meteorological Department on Thursday said the low over central part of the Bay of Bengal moved north-northwestwards, intensified into a well-marked low and now lies over north-west Bay and adjoining west-central Bay.

According to a bulletin, it is likely to intensify further, causing heavy to moderate rainfall across the country all day long. 

Shahnaz Sultana, a meteorologist at Dhaka Met office, said rainfalls are likely to continue for the next two-three days.
