Heavy rain expected across country: Weather Office

Bangladesh Meteorological Department (BMD) has predicted widespread rain and thundershowers across all divisions, including Dhaka, within the next 24 hours starting from 9 am on Sunday.

According to the latest update from the BMD, “Light to moderate rain or thundershowers accompanied by temporary gusty winds are likely to occur at many places in Rangpur, Mymensingh, and Sylhet divisions. Few places in the Chattogram division and some locations in Rajshahi, Dhaka, Khulna, and Barishal divisions will also experience similar weather conditions. Moderately heavy to heavy rainfall is expected in parts of Rangpur, Mymensingh, and Sylhet divisions,” reports UNB. 

Tangail recorded the highest rainfall in the country, with 108 mm over the 24 hours leading up to 6 am today. This significant rainfall is indicative of the active monsoon season currently affecting the region.

The BMD has noted that the monsoon is fairly active over Bangladesh and moderate over the north Bay. This active monsoon system is contributing to the increased rainfall and storm activity across the country.

Slight rises in both day and night temperatures are anticipated across Bangladesh. Khagrachhari experienced the highest temperature at 35.8°C, while the lowest temperature was recorded in Netrakona at 24°C over the past 24 hours up to 6 am Sunday.
