Rain likely

Rain or thunder showers accompanied by temporary gusty wind is likely to occur at many places over Barishal and Chattogram divisions, at a few places over Khulna and Dhaka divisions and at one or two places over Sylhet division in the next two days.

Shahnaz Sultana, meteorologist of Bangladesh Meteorological Department (BMD), said there is a moderate chance of rainfall on Thursday but persistence of rainfall is more on Friday and Saturday.

“South-west monsoon has withdrawn from northern part of the country. Monsoon is less active elsewhere over the country and weak to moderate over North Bay,” forecasted the BMD.

The country has been experiencing hot and stuffy weather over the past few days at the end of autumn.

Some places of the country have witnessed a little rainfall but it was not enough to reduce the heat wave.

The highest temperature of the country was recorded 36.6 degrees Celsius in Mymensingh and Sylhet on Wednesday.

The highest temperature in Dhaka was 35.2 degrees Celsius on the day.

The temperature hovered between 34 to 35 degrees Celsius in most parts of the country. It went up to 37.2 degrees Celsius in Sylhet on Tuesday.
