Temperature ‘to rise’ in couple of days

Special Correspondent

Meteorologists say temperatures may begin to rise in a couple of days but day and night temperatures are expected to remain almost unchanged today.  Meteorologist Ruhul Kuddus of the Dhaka Met Office says heat may begin to replace the pleasant spring weather from today and tomorrow, when the wind direction changes from the present north/north-westerly to a south/south-easterly flow, generating moisture to induce thunder storms or the Kalbaishakhis or Norwesterlies,  bringing the high winds with rains. The rising temperature could bring more thunderstorms in subsequent days, Kuddus said.

Asked why the nights were still cool after day-time heat, the meteorologist attributed it to north-westerly dry, cool winds. Meanwhile, the highest maximum temperature in the country yesterday was recorded in Khepupara (34.5C) and in Sitakunda.

In Dhaka it was 32C, rising slightly from Friday’s 32.2C. Kuddus said the temperature was slightly above normal temperature at this time. With weather conditions changing, rain and thunderstorms may start from March 12 and 13 and recur again March 16-17, Kuddus added.
