Another cold wave in 5 days likely
An expert at Dhaka Met Office told the news agency that a westerly low, now lying over northern India, is expected to pass through the northern Bangladesh in the next few days, creating a high-pressure area over Uttar Pradesh, Bihar, West Bengal and adjoining Bangladesh.
He said the high pressure is likely to bring cold wind from the Himalayas, leading to a moderate cold spell when the mercury could fall to 6-8 degree Celsius mainly in Rajshahi, Khulna and Sylhet divisions.
But the rest of the country would have mild to moderate cold wave with 8-10 degree Celsius temperature, the expert said.
Temperature will rise gradually after the first week of February, he said.
