A cold wave may start from Wednesday, BMD says

The intensity of the warm weather in the middle of the winter season, which currently sweeping across different regions of the country, may drop on Tuesday at some places, according to a weather forecast.

Moreover, a cold wave may start from Wednesday, Bangladesh Meteorological Department (BMD) said in a release on Tuesday. 

“From Tuesday night, a mild cold wave may sweep over Khulna division and parts of Tangail, Rangamati, Noakhali, Rajshahi, and Pabna districts. Day and night temperatures may fall by 1-2 degrees Celsius across the country on Tuesday,” BMD says. 

Talking to Dhaka Tribune, BMD Director Shamsuddin Ahmed said temperature would not change significantly this month but might fluctuate slightly in several intervals.

Meteorologist Arif Hossain said: "The temperature has gone down compared to Monday. There is a possibility of a cold wave from Wednesday.”

The cold wave may sweep the northern and south-western regions from Wednesday or Thursday, especially in Jessore and Satkhira districts as well as Rangpur and Rajshahi divisions, he added.

The meteorologist further said the north-westerly wind is the reason behind the possible cold wave. The north-westerly wind comes to Bangladesh from Punjab-Haryana via Uttar Pradesh, Bihar, and West Bengal in India. 

Meanwhile, the forecast for the next 24 hours from 9am says that the day and night temperatures across the country may drop slightly.

The temperature is likely to gradually decrease over the next three days. 

From midnight to morning, there may be moderate to heavy fog in river basins across the country and light to moderate fog elsewhere in the country.
