Bangladesh Meteorological Department (BMD) on Monday (December 4) predicted light to moderate rain to start in the country from Tuesday (December 5) under the influence of the cyclonic storm Michaung making landfall along south Andhra Pradesh coast.

Different weather models showed that the storm’s outer band of clouds already reached the skies of West Bengal on Monday afternoon.

‘Rain starts in places of the country today,’ meteorologist Bazlur Rashid told the press.

‘Almost the entire Bangladesh, except Rangpur and Mymensingh, might witness rain tomorrow and the day after,’ he said.

The BMD already issued signal number 2 for four maritime ports because of the rain.

The cyclonic storm made landfall about 1,500 kilometers from Bangladesh.

The overall day temperature is likely to remain more or less unchanged during the rain due to the presence of increased moisture, said meteorologist Toriful Newaz Kabir.

‘But the temperature might drop after December 10,’ he said.

Independent weather forecaster, Mostofa Kamal Palash, a PhD researcher at the School of Environment and Sustainability at the University of Saskatchewan, Canada, predicted up to 125mm of rainfall between today and December 7.

The central part of Bangladesh is set to witness more rain than other parts of the country, he said in his forecast given in his website

Rain is likely to start over coastal districts from today, he said.

Rain at this time could bring consequences for coastal farmers for aman rice is about to ripe. On Monday, Bangladesh’s lowest minimum temperature of 13.5C was recorded in Tetulia.
