Rain slows down to bring heat, humidity in city, southern parts

Special Correspondent

Heat and humidity increased in the city and in the south, as the rain slowed down since Wednesday but precipitation rose in the north-west, where, in the Tetulia, it totalled 200mm overnight with a maximum temperature earlier in the day falling to 29.9 degrees Celsius.

As the rain slowed down, the city recorded a paltry 07mm, and the maximum temperature in the capital yesterday was 33.2C. But it seemed unbearable because of the high humidity. The temperature in the city yesterday rose by 2.1C from the previous day’s maximum temperature, which was 29.8C on Tuesday because the day was wet and it experienced 43mm of rainfall.

Arif Hossain, a meteorologist at the Dhaka Met Office said the rain made all the difference between the past two days’ temperature.

With the rain shifting towards the south, the south-eastern tip Teknaf would receive the most pounding today, making life difficult for the Rohingyas camped in makeshift homes curved out of hill slopes.

They had to withstand heavy rainfall on Wednesday that totalled 94mm till 6am, while it was 116m in Cox’s Bazar. But it dropped to 103mm yesterday.

The weather today would remain sultry with little precipitation in the city. At times, there are breaks in the rainfall during the monsoon, making the weather muggy, But this was not unusual, Arif added.
