Rainfall activity is likely to decrease across the country in the next 72 hours, said Bangladesh Meteorological Department (BMD) in a weather bulletin today.

The weather bulletin, signed by Meteorologist Md. Tariful Newaz Kabir, BMD deputy director, states that light to moderate rain or thundershowers accompanied by temporary gusty wind and lightning flashes are likely to occur at many places over Khulna, Barishal, Chattogram and Sylhet divisions and at a few places over Rajshahi, Rangpur, Mymensingh and Dhaka divisions with “moderately heavy to heavy falls” at places over the country in the next 24 hours ending tomorrow at 9 am.

Besides, day and night temperature may remain nearly unchanged over the country during the period, it added.

Meteorologist Md. Tariful Newaz Kabir said in the weather bulletin that the monsoon axis runs through Bihar, West Bengal and thence northeastwards to Assam across the central part of Bangladesh. As a result, the monsoon is fairly active over Bangladesh and moderate over North Bay.

The country’s maximum temperature was recorded at 34.5°C yesterday at Sayedpur in the Rangpur division while today’s minimum temperature was recorded at 23.5°C at Sitakunda in the Chattogram division. Besides, the maximum rainfall in the last 24 hours was recorded at 96 mm at Madaripur in the Dhaka division.

Today’s sunset will be at 6:49 pm and tomorrow’s sunrise will be at 5:12 am.
