For the last few days, the day temperature became so much intense that whenever commuters are out in the streets in the capital, it feels like the skin could peel off anytime. However, today at noon, the heat of the sun suddenly reduced and became cloudy, but there was no indication of rain or thundershowers.

Meanwhile, the country’s Met Office, Bangladesh Meteorological Department (BMD), said that the Southwest monsoon has withdrawn from Bangladesh. Rain or thundershowers accompanied by temporary gusty wind is likely to occur over the Chattogram region, however, there is no sign of rain in Dhaka, although the sky becomes cloudy. 

Meteorologist AKM Ruhul Quddush said there are “10 types of clouds”. What is prevailing in Dhaka and its surrounding areas is called “high-cloud”, located above 20,000 feet. The sky looks cloudy as the clouds are so high, but there will be no rain. “It doesn’t rain during the high-cloud,” he added.  

The maximum temperature in Dhaka was recorded at 32.8°C yesterday while today’s minimum temperature was recorded in the city was 22.8°C. The humidity in Dhaka was 93 percent on Monday morning. As a result, it was feeling a bit hot.
