Dhaka sees sporadic showers all day long
Dhaka witnessed a drenched morning yesterday as intermittent monsoon rain continued across the country.
The monsoon trough is active over Bangladesh and moderate over North Bay, commencing at 9am yesterday, according to a Bangladesh Met Department weather forecast.
Meanwhile from 6am to 3pm, 28mm of rain was recorded in the capital.
"The axis of monsoon trough runs through Uttar Pradesh, Bihar, and West Bengal to Assam across the central part of Bangladesh. One of its associated troughs extends up to North Bay," said the BMD's weather forecast.
Maritime ports were advised to lower the local cautionary signal-three for now.
According to the forecast, light to moderate rain/thundershowers accompanied by temporary gusty wind is likely to occur at most places over Rajshahi, Dhaka, Khulna, Barishal and Chattogram divisions.
Many places over Rangpur, Mymensingh and Sylhet divisions are likely to see moderately heavy to very heavy falls including places over the country.
An outlook for the next 72 hours forecast by BMD, however, shows a possible decrease in rain/thundershowers.
