Heavy rain set to soak Bangladesh22 October 2020 ONLINE DESK
Heavy rainfall is likely to drench parts of Bangladesh for last few days.
Widespread rains and squally weather conditions have been forecast across the region after a trough of low over the Bay of Bengal intensified into a well-marked low-pressure system over west-central Bay of Bengal.
The Bangladesh Meteorological Department has advised maritime ports of Chattogram, Cox’s Bazar, Mongla and Payra to hoist local cautionary signal No. 3.
Thundershowers accompanied by temporary gusts are on the cards in most places over Dhaka, Khulna, Barishal and Chattrogram divisions with moderately heavy to heavy falls in other parts of the country in the coming days.
The squally weather conditions are likely to persist during the next two days, according to the Met Office.
The Met Office has asked fishing boats and trawlers in the north Bay of Bengal and the deep sea to remain near the coast and exercise caution until further notice.
