The early spring showers across Dhaka and other parts of Bangladesh caused by a westerly low is unlikely to linger beyond tomorrow.

Which means, there might be improvements in the weather from tomorrow and the day after is very likely to be bright and sunny.

Bangladesh Meteorological Department says, westerly low lies over Gangetic West Bengal and adjoining southwestern Bangladesh extending through to North Bay.

Due to such, Dhaka and other parts of Bangladesh have been witnessing showers in the last three days. Rainfall from 6:00am to 9:00am measured to 15mm.

Ruhul Kuddus, a Met officer, told The Daily Star that the rain across Dhaka and other parts of the country is unlikely to linger beyond tomorrow.

“After tomorrow, there might be little precipitation in the eastern parts, but by large, the weather will certainly be brighter after tomorrow,” he said.

Weather forecast for today is, rain or thunder showers accompanied by gust or squally wind is likely to occur over Rajshahi, Rangpur, Dhaka, Mymensingh, Khulna, Barishal, Chattogram and Sylhet divisions. Moderate to heavy rainfall is likely at some places.

The night temperature may remain nearly unchanged and day temperature may fall up to 2 degrees Celsius over the country.
