"The depression is likely to move northwestwards...Monsoon is very active over the southern part of Bangladesh, active elsewhere over the country and strong over North Bay," said the Bangladesh Meteorological Department (BMD) bulletin valid for 24 hours commencing at 9:00 am on Sunday, reports BSS.

However, day and night temperature may fall slightly over the southern part of Bangladesh and it may remain nearly unchanged elsewhere in the country.
