“Rain or thundershowers accompanied by temporary gusty or squally wind is likely to occur at many places over Chattogram and Barishal divisions; at a few places over Rangpur, Dhaka, Mymensingh and Sylhet divisions; and at one or two places over Rajshahi and Khulna divisions with moderately heavy to heavy falls at places over Barishal and Chattogram divisions,” the Met Office said.
 “South-west monsoon has advanced up to Chattogram coast. Trough of low lies over India’s West Bengal and adjoining area,” the BMD weather bulletin reads.

A mild to moderate heatwave is sweeping over Rangpur division and the districts of Rajshahi, Naogaon, Sirajganj, Netrokona and Sylhet and it may continue over the north-western part of the country.
