Met Office forecasts severe nor'westers next month
Alongside some moderate thunder storms, Bangladesh may experience severe nor's westers in May, an official of the Bangladesh Meteorological Department (Met Office) told BSS on Friday. Nor'westers with wind speeds ranging from 45-60kmph are classified as moderate storms, while those with wind speeds from 60-80kmph are classified as severe storms. "Three severe Nor' westers have already hit the northern and central parts of the country, including Dhaka city, this month. Four to five moderate Nor'westers also hit different parts of the country this year," Nazmul Haque, a meteorologist of the Met Office, said. He said the highest wind speed of a nor’wester this year was recorded at 77 kmph. The meteorologist added that the frequency and intensity of the nor'westers was normal for this time of year in Bangladesh, with both expected to increase next month. The northern, central and north eastern regions of the country are likely to face the most storms, as these areas are geographically nor'wester prone. Met Office official Md Abul Kalam Mallik said some of the nor'westers that hit Bangladesh this year were hailstorms, causing severe damage to crops in the northern and central regions of the country.
