Expect some reprieve from the high heat and humidity, as the weatherman has predicted showers in Bangladesh in the next 24 hours.

“Light to moderate rain or thundershowers accompanied by temporary gusty winds is likely to occur at many places over Rangpur, Rajshahi, Mymensingh, Dhaka, Barishal, Chattogram and Sylhet divisions and at a few places over Khulna division with moderately heavy to heavy falls at places over the country,” the Met department said in its weather bulletin on Friday.

The Bangladesh Meteorological Department (BMD) said a mild heatwave that is sweeping through the districts of Jashore and Satkhira may abate during the same time.

Day temperature may fall slightly and night temperature may remain nearly unchanged over the country, according to the bulletin.

The maximum temperature was recorded at 36 degree Celsius in both Satkhira and Jashore in the last 24 hours till 6am Friday.

Meanwhile, the maximum rainfall was recorded at 67 mm in Syedpur.
