In Bangladesh, winter season lasts from December to February with the northern region and river basins usually experience moderate or dense fog, and mild to moderate fog overnight in other regions throughout the country.

"One or two cold waves will hit the country in the last week of December. But it will not be that severe," meteorologist Arif Hossain, from the Met department told Bangla Tribune on Thursday.

The northern, southern and south-western parts of the country would experience more cold waves during this period with no significant fall in temperature in Dhaka.

Meanwhile, the Bangladesh Metrology Department (BMD) forecasted a fall in temperature in the next 24 hours ending at 6pm on Friday.

On Thursday, the lowest temperature - 11.3°C - in the country was recorded at Pannchaganr's Tentulia but in Dhaka, the mercury did not drop below 16.3°C.

The Met office also predicted light rain or drizzle may hit at one or two places in Rangpur division.
