More rains are likely to drench Bangladesh in the next 24 hours with the monsoon being fairly active over the country and moderate over the North Bay, the weather department said Sunday.

“Light to moderate rain or thundershowers accompanied by temporary gusty wind is likely to occur at many places over Khulna, Barisal, Chittagong and Sylhet divisions and at a few places over Rangpur, Rajshahi, Dhaka and Mymensingh divisions with moderately heavy to heavy falls at places over the country,” the Bangladesh Meteorological Department (BMD) said in its forecast.

Day and night temperature may remain nearly unchanged over the country, it added.

The Met office recorded the highest 38mm rainfall in Tetulia of Rangpur in 24 hours till 6am on Sunday.

Meanwhile, the overall flood situation in the country may improve gradually, according to Bangladesh Weather Observatory Team (BWOT), an independent weather research group.

The Flood Forecasting and Warning Centre of the Bangladesh Water Development Board (BWDB) said all major rivers in the North-Eastern region of the country are in a falling trend, which may remain steady in the next 24 hours. 

However, the Brahmaputra-Jamuna rivers are in a rising trend. The Brahmaputra River may remain steady, while the Jamuna river may continue rising in the next 24 hours, according to their latest bulletin.
