Both Bangladesh and Pakistan are expected to receive rain in the coming weekend. Monsoon has already covered some parts of Bangladesh where it has been raining heavily. Let’s take a detailed look at the weather condition in India’s neighbouring countries.
Weather in Pakistan
As the cyclonic storm Ashobaa moved away towards Oman and is expected to make landfall shortly, thick cloud cover over southern Pakistan and adjoining areas of Gujarat and Rajasthan brought respite from scorching heat. Though rainfall was scanty and was limited over southern parts of the country, neighbouring areas of Gujarat and Rajasthan received good amounts of rain.
Due to the combined effect of these weather activities, temperatures which were earlier recording in the 40s have come down to the high 30s. The day temperature in Badin came down from 43°C to settle at 38°C. Similarly, Hyderabad saw the maximum drop from 41°C to 38°C and Chor saw the day temperature settle at 39°C from 43°C.
During the next 48 hours, scattered rain is expected over the northeastern parts of Pakistan, particularly over Sialkot, Lahore, Faisalabad and Jhelum. Temperatures which are already running in the higher 30s are expected to drop further.
Weather in Bangladesh
Since the last 48 hours, rainfall activity has increased significantly over parts of Bangladesh. Earlier, extreme southern and some parts of North Bangladesh were receiving rain but now, most parts of East Bangladesh are receiving heavy to very heavy rain.
In the last 24 hours from 8:30 am on Thursday, Chandrapur received 126 mm of rain, Sandwip (55 mm), Mymemsingh (55 mm), Saidpur (76 mm), and Rangpur (59 mm).
Moist southerly winds from the Bay of Bengal are increasing the moisture levels leading to overcast skies and heavy rain. Gradually, the rain belt will cover entire Bay of Bengal and heavy rain is expected to continue for next 48 hours.
