News Desk: The light pressure created in the Bay of Bengal has become stronger and has become a clear light pressure. As a result, the coastal areas and seaports of Bangladesh may be affected by the storm. Therefore, the Meteorological Department has issued the local warning signal number 3 in the seaports.

Meteorologist Muhammad Abul Kalam Mallick said that the light pressure in the Bay of Bengal and nearby North Bay area has become concentrated (strong) and is located in the Northwest Bay of Bengal and nearby West-Central Bay area in the form of clear light pressure. It may be more concentrated.

He also said that the monsoon is moderately active over Bangladesh and moderate to strong in the North Bay.

The weather forecast for the next 24 hours from 9 am on Sunday (September 12) said that light to moderate rain or thundershowers with temporary gusts are expected in many parts of Khulna, Barisal, Chittagong and Sylhet divisions and a couple of places in Rangpur, Rajshahi, Mymensingh and Dhaka divisions. Maybe. At the same time, there may be moderate to heavy rains in Chittagong and Barisal divisions.

During this time, daytime temperatures across the country may remain almost unchanged and nighttime temperatures may rise slightly. The meteorological department has also forecast rain for the next three days.

Chittagong received the heaviest rainfall in the last 24 hours from 8 am on Saturday to 8 am on Sunday, 36 mm. At that time there was no rain in most parts of the country including Dhaka. The highest temperature in the country on Saturday was 37.8 degrees Celsius in Dhaka, the Meteorological Department said.

According to the weather warning, the effect of clear light pressure is causing a lot of variation in air pressure in the North Bay and adjoining areas. Stormy winds can blow over the coastal areas of Bangladesh, North Bay of Bengal and seaports.

For this, Chittagong, Cox's Bazar, Mongla and Payra seaports have been asked to display local warning signal number 3.

The warning message asked fishing boats and trawlers stationed in the North Bay to move closer to the coast until further notice.

The local warning signal number 3 means that there is a danger of disaster for the ships anchored in the port and the port. Stormy winds can blow in the port and the continuous speed of the whirlwind can be 40 to 50 kilometers per hour.

Due to various natural causes, a region of the ocean creates a region of centrifugal winds or light pressure. Gradually this stormy wind region accumulates energy (as the wind speed increases) leading to obvious light pressure, low pressure, deep depression and eventually cyclone.
