Meteorologist Dr. Muhammad Abul Kalam Mallik, deputy director of Bangladesh Meteorological Department (BMD), today said that the day temperature may fall slightly while the night temperature may remain nearly unchanged over the country.

He said this in a weather bulletin issued by the country’s Met Office on Saturday.

According to the Met Office, light to moderate rain or thundershowers accompanied by temporary gusty wind is likely to occur at many places over Rangpur and Rajshahi divisions; at a few places over Mymensingh, Sylhet and Chattogram divisions. Besides, moderately heavy downpours is likely to occur at one or two places over Khulna, Barishal and Dhaka divisions and at isolated places over the northern part of the country.

“Rain or thundershowers is likely to increase in the next 72 hours,” Meteorologist Dr. Muhammad Abul Kalam added in the weather bulletin.

Dr. Muhammad Abul Kalam said the well-marked low over Bihar and adjoining area weakened into a “low-pressure area” over the same area. It is likely to “recurve” eastwards. 

“The axis of monsoon trough runs through Rajsthan, Harayana, Uttar Pradesh, the center of the low, West Bengal to Assam across the central part of Bangladesh. Monsoon is fairly active over Bangladesh and weak over North Bay,” he further said.
