Rainfall may increase in the next five days, says Met Office

Amid a mild heatwave sweeping parts of Bangladesh, the Met Office says light to moderate rain is likely to occur in a number of places, mainly in Mymensingh, Barisal, Chittagong and Sylhet divisions in the next 24 hours.

The similar weather may also prevail at a few places over Dhaka, Rajshahi, Rangpur and Khulna divisions with moderately heavy falls or thunder showers accompanied by temporary gusty wind.

The 24-hour long forecast issued at 6pm on Friday says that day temperature on Saturday may fall by up to two degrees Celsius and night temperature may remain nearly unchanged across the country.

This happens as a trough of low lies over West Bengal and adjoining areas of Bangladesh. Another trough of low extends from West Bengal to North Bay.

Also, the two-day outlook of the Bangladesh Meteorological Department (BMD) predicts that southwest monsoon may advance up to the Teknaf coast in Cox’s Bazar. Rainfall activity may increase in the country in the next five days.

The relieving news comes at a time when Dhaka, Rajshahi and Khulna divisions and the districts of Rangpur, Dinajpur, Nilphamari and Chandpur are sizzling with a mild heatwave, which may weaken in some areas.

On Friday, the country’s highest temperature (37.5 degrees Celsius) was measured in Khulna, with the lowest (24.2 degrees Celsius) recorded in Jessore.

Two low pressures in June

The month-wise forecast for June says that two low pressures may form in the Bay of Bengal, and one of them can turn into a deep depression. Also, heavy showers with gusty wind or thunders may occur in a number of days.

Worryingly, the BMD observes that the country’s northern, north-eastern and south-eastern districts may witness flash floods due to heavy downpour.
