More rains are likely to drench Bangladesh in the next 24 hours, with monsoon being fairly active over the country and moderate over the North Bay, the weather department said Monday.
“Light to moderate rain or thunder showers accompanied by temporary gusty wind is likely to occur at many places over Rangpur, Mymensingh and Sylhet divisions; at a few places over Dhaka and Chattogram divisions and at one or two places over Rajshahi, Khulna and Barishal divisions with moderately heavy to heavy falls at isolated places over the Rangpur, Mymensingh, Chattogram & Sylhet divisions,” the Bangladesh Meteorological Department (BMD) said in its forecast.
Day and night temperature may remain nearly unchanged over the country.
The Met office recorded the highest 103mm rainfall in Tetulia of Rangpur in 24 hours till 6am today (Monday).
Meanwhile, the flood situation in the northern region and low-lying areas of the central region may improve, but it may continue for more days due to heavy rainfall at the end of June or first week of July, according to Bangladesh Weather Observatory Team (BWOT), an independent weather research group.
The flood situation is unlikely to worsen further as the rainfall may not continue for a longer period, it added.
Besides, the water levels of the major rivers in the country is falling, said the Flood Forecasting & Warning Centre of the Bangladesh Water Development Board (BWDB) in their latest bulletin.
