Light to moderate rain or thundershowers accompanied by temporary gusty wind is likely to occur at many places over Barishal and Chattogram divisions, at a few places over Dhaka, Khulna and Sylhet divisions and at one or two places over Rajshahi, Rangpur and Mymensingh divisions with moderately heavy to heavy falls at places over southern part of Bangladesh. 

Day temperature may rise slightly and night temperature may fall slightly over eastern part and it may rise slightly elsewhere over the country, it added

Today’s sunset at Dhaka at 6.50 pm and tomorrow’s sunrise at Dhaka at 5.14 am, the release said.
