A mild heat wave has been sweeping over the country for the last couple of days making public life miserable.

The searing heat of the subtropical climate has been affecting the vast area of the country in the last month.

A mild heat wave is sweeping over the districts of Dhaka, Rajshahi, Pabna, Feni and Chuadanga and it may continue, said Shahnaj Sultana, a meteorologist of the Bangladesh Meteorological Department (BMD).

Day and night temperatures may remain nearly unchanged over the country, said she adding that the current temperature may continue for two more days.

The highest temperature in the country was recorded at 37.5 degrees Celsius at Rajshahi on Monday, she said.

The country’s maximum temperature was recorded at 37.4 degree Celsius at Rajshahi on Sunday.

The highest temperature was recorded 36.1 degree Celsius in Dhaka on Monday.

In a forecast, the met office said the axis of the monsoon trough runs through Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh, Odisha, Bihar, Gangetic West Bengal to Assam across the southern part of Bangladesh. “One of its associated troughs extends up to North Bay. Monsoon is less active over Bangladesh and moderate over North Bay,” it said.          Light to moderate rain or thunder showers accompanied by temporary gusty wind is likely to occur at many places over Rangpur, Mymensingh, Chattogram and Sylhet divisions and at one or two places over Rajshahi, Dhaka, Khulna and Barishal divisions with moderately heavy falls at places over Chattogram, Sylhet and Mymensingh divisions.
