Depression in Bay makes the day hotter: Met
A shorter winter this yearNew Age Online
The weather feels warmer Wednesday as a low looms in the Southeast of the Bay of Bengal, meteorologists said.
A Met official explained that the weather was dry and warm because of cloudy sky in most part of the country in the last two days.
The warmer weather may continue for the next two or three days, according to duty forecasting officer, Ayesha Khatun.
As there was no cloud in the sky, temperatures on Sunday and Monday were lower than the temperatures of Tuesday and Wednesday, she added.
The clouds cause the earth surface to stay warmer as the heat cannot travel out of the atmosphere.
This year, winter will set late and will be little shorter because of a number of depressions in the Bay of Bengal, Ayesha also said.
Today at 2:00pm the daytime temperature in Dhaka was recorded at 29 degree Celsius, around 3 degree higher than the corresponding days in the previous years, another Met official said.
A mid-range cold-wave is likely to sweep in the country in the last week of December, Ayesha pointed out.
Wednesday’s Met bulletin said, Tuesday well marked low over Southeast Bay and adjoining Southwest Bay was still persisting. It is likely to intensify further.
Night-time temperature may rise slightly and day temperature may remain nearly unchanged across the country till Thursday morning, the bulletin added.
