Monsoon is strong over North Bay

The maritime ports of Chittagong, Cox's Bazar, Mongla, and Payra have been asked to keep hoisted the local cautionary signal no 3, as a low pressure system has formed over the North Bay and the adjoining area.

Monsoon is strong over North Bay and under the influence of the low steep pressure gradient that persists over the area, according to a Met Office bulletin issued Tuesday morning.

Light to moderate rain or thunder showers accompanied by temporary gusty wind is likely to occur at many places over Chittagong and Barisal divisions and at a few places over Khulna, Dhaka, Mymensingh, Sylhet, Rajshahi, and Rangpur divisions, with moderately heavy to heavy falls at places over the country.
