Rain or thundershowers activity is likely to increase in the next 72 hours or within three days, said Bangladesh Meteorological Department (BMD) in a weather forecast signed by Meteorologist Md. Abdur Rahman Khan, deputy director of BMD.

According to the country’s Met Office, Light to moderate rain or thundershowers accompanied by temporary gusty wind is likely to occur at one or two places over Rajshahi, Rangpur, Mymensingh, Dhaka, Khulna, Barishal, Chattogram and Sylhet divisions with moderately heavy fall at isolated places over the country in the next 24 hours.

“Day temperature may rise slightly” and night temperature may remain nearly unchanged over the country, the weather forecast also said.

Meteorologist Md. Abdur Rahman Khan said the axis of monsoon trough runs through Rajsthan, Madhya Pradesh, Bihar, Gangetic West Bengal to Assam across the southern part of Bangladesh, as a result, the low over South-east Jharkhand and adjoining area has become “unimportant” and merged with the monsoon area.

“One of its associated troughs has extended upto North Bay. So, monsoon is less active over Bangladesh and weak over North Bay,” he added.

The Met Office stated that the country’s maximum temperature was recorded at 35.0°C yesterday at Sylhet and Srimangal while today’s minimum temperature was recorded at 24.3°C at Tetulia in the Rangpur division.

Today’s sunset will be at 5:53 pm and tomorrow’s sunrise will be at 5:48 am.
