Another spell of mild cold wave is likely to sweep over different parts of the country, Met office sources said. Temperatures may fall by two to five degrees Celsius over the Khulna, Rajshahi, Sylhet and Dhaka divisions. It may remain nearly unchanged elsewhere over the country.

The southern areas are likely to have wet weather as some clouds have arrived from the Bay of Bengal where at the north Bay convective clouds developed on Saturday whipping up squally winds leaving the sea rough. It prompted the met office to ask the maritime ports of Chittagong. Cox’s Bazar and Mongla to raise local cautionary signal number three.
