A mild cold wave has descended upon northern and western parts of Bangladesh, bringing with it chilly temperatures and foggy mornings. While the intensity may decrease in some areas, officials urge caution due to potential disruptions to air travel, river transport, and road communication.
A chilly grip has settled over parts of Bangladesh, with a mild cold wave sweeping through Rajshahi, Dinajpur, Panchagarh, and Chuadanga. While some areas may see the intensity ease, expect dry weather with occasional cloud cover and be prepared for foggy mornings. The moderate to thick fog, lingering in some places till noon, might disrupt air travel, inland river transport, and road communication, causing potential delays and cancellations.
While night temperatures will likely rise slightly, day temperatures will remain mostly unchanged, with cold day conditions expected in many areas. Remember, on Saturday, Teknaf recorded a high of 26.8°C, while Dinajpur shivered at a low of 8.5°C on Sunday.
This cold wave is fueled by a sub-continental high pressure system extending over West Bengal and its surrounding areas. So, bundle up, drive cautiously in the fog, and keep an eye on travel updates – this cold wave might not bite too hard, but it’s best to be prepared!
A seasonal low pressure system lies over the South Bay, extending its trough to the North Bay. Sunrise in Dhaka on Monday is at 6:44 am, and sunset is at 5:31 pm.
