The Bangladesh Meteorological Department (BMD) has advised maritime ports in Chattogram, Cox’s Bazar, Mongla, and Payra to hoist local cautionary signal no three. This is due to deep convection occurring over the North Bay and adjoining areas, caused by a low-pressure area that has intensified into a well-marked low over the Northwest Bay of Bengal. As a result, all fishing boats and trawlers in the North Bay have been advised to stay close to the coast and proceed with caution.

The monsoon trough axis runs through Haryana, Uttar Pradesh, Bihar, and West Bengal, with the center of the well-marked low extending to Assam across southern Bangladesh. Khulna and Barishal divisions are likely to experience light to moderate rain and thunder showers, accompanied by temporary gusty winds. Rajshahi, Rangpur, Dhaka, and Chattogram divisions may also see rain at many places, while Mymensingh and Sylhet divisions may experience rain at a few places. Southern parts of the country may even witness moderately heavy to very heavy falls.

In addition, a mild heat wave is sweeping over Mymensingh and Sylhet divisions, as well as the districts of Tangail, Kishoregonj, Bogura, Rangpur, Sayedpur, and Panchagarh. However, temperatures are expected to fall slightly across the country during the day and night.
