Brace for showers in next 24 hours!

Day and night temperatures may remain nearly unchanged over the country

Expect a brief reprieve from the sweltering summer heat, as the weatherman has predicted rain or thundershowers in parts of Bangladesh in the next 24 hours.

“Showers are likely to occur at one or two places over Rajshahi, Rangpur, Mymensingh, Dhaka, and Sylhet divisions and the region of Comilla," the Bangladesh Meteorology Department (BMD) said in a weather bulletin on Friday.

"Weather may remain mainly dry with partly cloudy sky elsewhere over the country,” BMD said.

However, the mild heatwave which is currently sweeping over Khulna division, and the districts of Gopalgonj, Rangamati, Chandpur, Moulvibazar, Rajshahi, Barisal, and Patuakhali may continue, the bulletin said.

Day and night temperatures may remain nearly unchanged over the country.

The maximum temperature was recorded at 38°C in Jessore in the past 24 hours, the bulletin said.
