Along with Northeast India, Monsoon arrived in some parts of Bangladesh. Conditions are favourable for Monsoon to cover the rest of the country shortly. Heavy rain has lashed parts of Bangladesh, particularly northern half of the country. The satellite imagery also support heavy cloud mass sitting right over Bangladesh. Conditions look conducive for the next couple of days. Rain may become even heavier.
A cyclonic circulation is over Bihar and West Bengal region and is persisting for some time now. This system is responsible for pushing highly humid winds from the Bay of Bengal to Bangladesh. Most parts of the country have been receiving rain of varying intensity due to this reason. Even the capital city has received good amounts of rain in the last 24 hours.
In the last 24 hours from 8:30 am on Wednesday, Sylhet received 222.1 mm of rain, Rangpur (94.6 mm), Mymemsingh (67 mm), Saidpur (58.2 mm), Tangail (45 mm), Rangamati (37 mm), Bogra (39 mm), Feni (35 mm), and Dhaka (13 mm).
Heavy rain in Fatullah has already played spoilsport on the first and the second day of the one-off test match between India and Bangladesh. The chances of play are bleak in the coming days. Bangladesh will continue to receive heavy to very heavy rain for the next 24 hours. If the situation persists for a couple of days, it may lead to water-logging and a flood like situation.
