Heavy rain to continue in Bangladesh

June 24, 2015 4:57 PM |

bang rainBangladesh was receiving very good rains till mid of June and then, there after there was a lull of about four days when rain activity over Bangladesh reduced significantly. The reduced activity was observed from 16th June to 19th June. This sudden subdued rainfall activity was sue to a depression which had developed over north Andhra and Odisha coast. This resulted in all the moisture being concentrated around the depression and winds also started to converge in that area. This had led to moisture being cut off over Bangladesh and northeastern states of India.

When this depression entered inland by moving in a northwesterly direction, moist winds from Bay of Bengal again started blowing towards Bangladesh. It is because of this increased rainfall activity was witnessed during the last 48 hours. The places which recorded moderate to heavy rainfall in the last 24 hours are: Patuakhali 140 mm, Rangamati 143 mm, Sandwip 84 mm, Teknaf 94 mm and Maijdee Court 67 mm.

According to Skymet Meteorological Division heavy rain will continue over Bangladesh for at least the next two to three days. This is due to a low pressure area which is over Gangatic West Bengal that will move in a northeasterly direction and affect Bangladesh. These rains may spoil the scheduled third ODI between India and Bangladesh today.
