The southern districts of Bangladesh have been receiving heavy to very heavy rains since last two to three days. All thanks to the deep depression area prevailing over Gangetic West Bengal. In the span of 24 hours from 8.30 am on Monday, Jessore witnessed heavy rain to the tune of 109 mm, Mongla 40.8 mm and Chaudanga 30.7 mm of rain.
In the same span of time, Patuakhali witnessed 8.7 mm of rain, Feni 8 mm, Rajshahi 8 mm, Ishurdi 9.8 mm, Sita Kundu 6.4 mm, Comilla 5.4 mm and Madaripur 4 mm of rain.
As per Skymet Weather, this deep depression has been moving west-northwest direction and is presently seen over Gangetic West Bengal and adjoining Jharkhand and Bihar. Hence, with the system drifting away, there will be significant reduction in the rain intensity over most parts of Bangladesh. Hence, scattered light rain and thundershowers with one or two moderate spells is likely over Bangladesh for the next two to three days.
Thereafter, by October 16, absolutely dry weather condition will return to the state. With the hefty showers during the last few days, the temperatures had dropped below 30-degree mark and are presently settling in the range of 27°C to 28°C. However, as the rain intensity will reduce, the mercury levels will once again rise by 3°C to 5°C in the next 24 to 48 hrs.
