Meanwhile from 6am to 3pm, 28mm of rain was recorded in the capital.

“The  axis of monsoon trough runs through Uttar Pradesh, Bihar, and West  Bengal to Assam across the central part of Bangladesh. One of its  associated troughs extends up to North Bay,” said the BMD’s weather  forecast.

Maritime ports were advised to lower the local cautionary signal-three for now.

According  to the forecast, light to moderate rain/thundershowers accompanied by  temporary gusty wind is likely to occur at most places over Rajshahi,  Dhaka, Khulna, Barishal and Chattogram divisions.

Many places over Rangpur, Mymensingh and Sylhet divisions are likely to see moderately heavy to very heavy falls including places over the country.

An outlook for the next 72 hours forecast by BMD, however, shows a possible decrease in rain/thundershowers.
