Intensity of rain over Nepal and Bangladesh likely to reduce in next 24 hours

June 26, 2015 2:37 PM |

Bangladesh Nepal WeatherWestern areas of Nepal have been receiving heavy to extremely heavy rainfall at many places. These rains were triggered by multiple weather systems affecting the region at the same time. Gradually, the intensity of rainfall over the region is expected to decrease but chances of landslides and flash floods can’t be overlooked.

In the last 24 hours, Dadeldhura received 135 mm rainfall, Dhangarhi 147 mm, Nepalgunj 169 mm, and Surkhet 51 mm of rain.

A Western Disturbance residing over Jammu and Kashmir is now moving in the north-eastern direction and has induced a low pressure over South Uttar Pradesh region. Another low pressure area, present over East India is accommodating the inflow of easterly winds over northern plains of India and Nepal. Also, a depression which entered Gujarat earlier in the week, is now moving inwards.

Due to all these weather systems, the foothills of Himalayas along with Uttarakhand and adjoining West Nepal were the majorly affected areas in terms of heavy rainfall activity. But now, a sizable reduction in the intensity of rain will be observed over the western side of Nepal. However, Central and East Nepal will continue to receive light to moderate rain over the next 24 hours.

Heavy rain lashes Bangladesh, respite ahead

Good rainfall activity has been observed over Bangladesh since last 48 hours but rain has gained momentum during last 24 hours. Widespread heavy to very heavy rainfall has been witnessed over the region in the last 24 hours.

In the last 24 hours, Cox’s Bazar has received 240 mm rainfall, Hatiya 114 mm, Rajshahi 101 mm, Patuakhali 92 mm, and Dhaka 82.5 mm of rain.

A low pressure area settling over Bangladesh and neighboring areas is responsible for this heavy rain in the region. A cyclonic circulation has also developed over northeast Bay of Bengal and under its influence a low pressure area is expected to develop over North Bay of Bengal in next 24 to 36 hours.

This system will divert the flow of moist winds away from Bangladesh and towards the low pressure. As per Skymet Meteorology Division in India, the ongoing heavy rainfall activity in Bangladesh is likely to lose its intensity within next 24 hours. Simply speaking, some respite from consistently heavy rainfall lies ahead for the country.
