Fog to linger in Dhaka, cold wave likely tomorrow
The thick fog blanket in Dhaka caused by the rain and customary climate of winter might linger for the next few days, Bangladesh Meteorological Department said today.
Yesterday’s rain cooled down the temperature throughout the country and caused the thick fog, Abdur Rahman, forecast officer of the met office, told The Daily Star Online.
“Today’s fog is caused by water residue in the atmosphere left by yesterday’s rain. Also, there is the customary winter fog. This fog might linger for about three to four days ranging from dense to moderate,” he said. “The rain caused the temperature drop.”
This drop in temperature is not the cold spell, he said. “The season’s third wave of cold is expected to begin from tomorrow and might linger for a couple of days.”
“And then again, the next cold spell might come around January 26. However, those cold spells are expected to be mild or moderate,” he said.
According to him, today’s minimum temperature was recorded in Chuadanga at 9.5 degrees Celcius while Dhaka recorded 11.8 degrees.
