Monsoon fairly active over Bangladesh


Monsoon is fairly active over Bangladesh and weak to moderate elsewhere over North Bay, said a Met office release here today.

A low has formed over North Bay and adjoining area and it is likely to
intensify further, it said, adding the axis of monsoon trough runs through
Uttar Pradesh, Bihar, West Bengal, centre of the low and thence
northeastwards to Assam across south-eastern part of Bangladesh.

Light to moderate rain or thundershowers accompanied by temporary gusty
wind is likely to occur at many places over Barishal and Chattogram
divisions, at a few places over Dhaka, Khulna and Sylhet divisions and at one
or two places over Rajshahi, Rangpur and Mymensingh divisions with moderately
heavy to heavy falls at places over southern part of Bangladesh.

Day temperature may rise slightly and night temperature may fall
slightly over eastern part and it may rise slightly elsewhere over the
country, it added.

Today’s sunset at Dhaka at 6.50 pm and tomorrow’s sunrise at Dhaka at
5.14 am, the release said.
