More rains expected as light pressure forms in sea again
Dhaka, July 27: Another light pressure in the Bay of Bengal is likely to have formed without negating the effect of the previous one. A light pressure is expected in the North Bay in the next two days, the meteorological office said. This information was given by the Meteorological Department on Monday (July 26) evening.
On July 23, the meteorological department said that a light pressure had formed in and around the North-West Bay of Bengal. Later it turned into an acute light pressure. At this point it crosses the coastal region of Orissa-West Bengal in India. The Bangladesh Meteorological Department said on Monday (July 26th) morning that the light pressure in northeastern Madhya Pradesh and adjoining areas had joined the monsoon winds.
At night, meteorologist Shahinul Islam said that the monsoon is moderately active over Bangladesh and moderate in the North Bay. In the next 48 hours (two days) there is a possibility of a light pressure in the North Bay and the chance of rainfall may increase.
He further said that in the next 24 hours from 6 pm on Monday in most parts of Khulna, Barisal and Chittagong divisions, in many parts of Rajshahi and Dhaka divisions and in some parts of Rangpur, Mymensingh and Sylhet divisions, there may be light to moderate rain or thundershowers with temporary gusts. At the same time, there may be moderate to heavy rains in some parts of the country.
