Kurigram shivers as temperature drops significantly


UNB, Kurigram :

The hustle and bustle of everyday life came to a standstill in Kurigram today as the district shivers in 10.5 degrees Celsius, showing a significant drop in the new year.

The temperature slowly drops as the sun remains elusive, and thick fog covered the district from Tuesday night.

The cold wave is particularly rough on children and elderly people of low-income families, and the farmers.

Most day labourers are failing to go out in search of work due to the low temperature.


Vehicle movement was disrupted due to the dense fog, forcing drivers to put headlights on during the daytime.

Subol Chandra, officer-in-charge of Kurigram Agricultural Meteorological Observatory said, the temperature dropped to 10.5 degrees Celsius in the district and may fall further in the upcoming days.

“Mild cold wave may sweep over the northern part of the country,” he said.

Farmers in the district are worried of possible damage of their crop fields and seedbeds due to the dense fog.
