Monsoon depression weakened

02 Aug 2023 / Bangladesh

The monsoon deep depression over Khulna and adjoining area of Bangladesh moved west-northwestwards, weakened into a land depression and now lies over West Bengal-Bihar and adjoining area. It is likely to move in a west-northwesterly direction and weaken gradually.

Under its influence, steep pressure gradient persists over North Bay and adjoining coastal area of Bangladesh. Squally weather is likely to continue over North Bay and adjoining coastal area of Bangladesh.

The maritime ports of Chattogram, Cox’s Bazar, Mongla and Payra have been advised to keep hoisted Local Cautionary Signal No. Three (R) Three.

Under the influence of the full moon and steep pressure gradient, the low-lying areas of the coastal districts and their offshore islands and chars are likely to be inundated by the wind-drive surge height of 02-03 feet above normal astronomical tide.

All fishing boats and trawlers over North Bay have been advised to remain in shelter until further notice.
