The local cautionary signal number 3 has been lifted from the four seaports of the country as the ongoing low pressure becomes less threatening. However, light rainfall remains on the cards in some areas across the country till Wednesday.

It has been further forecasted that the temperature will continue to drop in the coming days with the night temperature likely to drop by a maximum of three degrees.

On Tuesday, the lowest temperature in the country was recorded in Tetulia at 14.7 degrees Celsius and in Dhaka at 21.4 degrees Celsius.

On Tuesday noon, the meteorological department stated that strong winds are not likely to blow in the coastal areas of northern Bay and adjoining Bangladesh. Chittagong Cox's Bazar and Mongla and Payra seaports have been asked to lower the warning signal. Fishing boats and trawlers in the North Bay and the deep sea have been asked to move cautiously till Tuesday evening.

While talking to Bangladesh Post, meteorologist Abul Kalam said, "The light pressure in the Bay of Bengal and the adjoining West Bengal-Bangladesh coastal area has weakened at first and then became weaker and less impactful. The increase in light pressure from the South Bay of Bengal extends to the northeastern Bay of Bengal.”
