Since the last 2 to 3 days both the neighbouring countries of India, Pakistan and Bangladesh have been receiving good rain. Let’s take a detailed look at the weather conditions in both these countries.
Rain in Bangladesh
Since the past 3 to 4 days, Bangladesh has been receiving heavy to very heavy rain. Earlier, it was just North Bangladesh and adjoining areas of Meghalaya which were witnessing good amounts of rain. But, gradually the rain belt moved towards the central and southern parts of Bangladesh giving good amounts of rain in the region.
On June 13, Monsoon covered most parts of Bangladesh giving heavy rain in almost the entire country. According to Skymet Meteorology Division in India, heavy rain will continue over the region in the next 24 hours. Rain will reduce significantly from the central and southern parts of Bangladesh after 24 to 48 hours. But, northern parts of the country will continue to receive good amounts of rain.
The reason of reduced rain is the formation of a cyclonic circulation over North Bay of Bengal, which will further develop into a low-pressure area. Easterly winds from this system will increase the moisture over Gangetic West Bengal and East India. Moisture feed will reduce significantly resulting in decreased rainfall intensity over the region.
Rain in Pakistan
As reiterated by Skymet, northern and central parts of Pakistan have received good rain during the last 48 hours. Lahore, Multan, Bhawalpur, and Sarwoda have received light to moderate rain. Now the temperatures are running below 40°C, over all these areas.
A cyclonic circulation is over North Pakistan and the trough is extending up to Central Pakistan. Due to this, scattered light to moderate rain will continue over North and Central Pakistan for another 48 hours, which are keeping the temperatures under check and pleasant weather conditions will continue over the region. These pre-Monsoon showers will restore the soil moisture and will be beneficial for the sowing of Kharif crops.
