According to the weather forecast released by the Meteorological Department for the upcoming five days, the persistent heat wave and extreme hot conditions are expected to ease, giving way to rainfall across all regions. Southern and north-south regions of Bangladesh are likely to experience higher precipitation levels.
Anticipated weather conditions include light to moderate rain or thunderstorms accompanied by brief gusty winds, with most areas in Dhaka, Khulna, Barishal, Chattogram, and Sylhet divisions expecting these conditions. Mymensingh, Rajshahi, and Rangpur divisions may also see such weather, with some places experiencing moderately heavy to very heavy rainfall.
On Sunday, the highest recorded temperature in the country reached 37.4 degrees Celsius in Srimangal, while the lowest temperature today was 23.6 degrees Celsius in Bandarban. The highest recorded rainfall in the past 24 hours, until 6 am today, was 97 millimeters in Chattogram.
Meanwhile, a mild heat wave is affecting Rangpur, Rajshahi, Mymensingh, and Sylhet divisions, as well as certain districts including Dhaka, Tangail, Faridpur, Kishoregonj, Jashore, Chuadanga, Kushtia, Barishal, Bhola, Feni, and Cumilla. This heat wave is expected to weaken.
Daytime temperatures are predicted to decrease by 1-3 degrees Celsius, and nighttime temperatures may also fall slightly across the country. The sun will set at 06:00 pm today and rise at 05:46 am tomorrow in the capital.
Looking ahead to Monday and Tuesday, the weather forecast suggests light to moderate rain or thunderstorms with brief gusty winds in most areas of Mymensingh, Dhaka, Khulna, Barishal, Chattogram, and Sylhet divisions. Rangpur and Rajshahi divisions may also experience these conditions, with some places seeing moderately heavy to very heavy rainfall.
Both daytime and nighttime temperatures may see a slight decrease across the country.
The previously well-defined low-pressure system over West Madhya Pradesh and surrounding regions has weakened and merged with the monsoon axis. The monsoon trough now extends from Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh, Bihar, and West Bengal to Assam, passing through the southern part of Bangladesh. Monsoon activity is fairly active over Bangladesh and moderate over the North Bay.
