People are not getting any respite from the heatwave sweeping across the country at least in the next two days, says the Met Office.
A mild to moderate heatwave is sweeping over Dhaka, Mymensingh, Rajshahi, Rangpur, Khulna, Barisal, Chattogram and Sylhet divisions, and it may continue until Wednesday, says the latest bulletin of the Bangladesh Meteorological Department (BMD).
Issued at 6pm on Monday, the bulletin forecasts that the weather will remain unchanged until Wednesday.
But the BMD’s five-day outook says that there may be rain or thundershowers, and the day temperature may also fall.
The situation prevails as a trough of low lies over West Bengal and adjoining area, with a seasonal low lying over the South Bay.
