Bangladesh Meteorological Department (BMD) on Saturday predicted rain or thundershowers across the country today as a low pressure formed in the Bay of Bengal.
“Rain or thundershowers accompanied by temporary gusty or squally wind are likely to occur at many places over Barishal, Chattogram and Sylhet divisions; at a few places over Dhaka, Mymensingh and Khulna divisions; and at one or two places over Rajshahi and Rangpur divisions with moderately heavy to heavy falls at places over Barishal, Chattogram and Sylhet divisions,” a regular bulletin of the Met office said.
A mild heatwave is sweeping over the districts of Rajshahi, Pabna and Chuadanga and it may abate.
Day and Night temperatures may remain nearly unchanged over the country.
Besides, a low-pressure area has formed over the northeast Bay and adjoining area and intensified into a well-marked low over the same area.
Under its influence, deep convection is continuing over the north Bay. South-west monsoon has ad-vanced up to Chattogram and Sylhet divisions.
