Bangladesh could see less rainfall than usual as well as a few low pressures in the bay. A depression could form in the bay at the end of December, the forecast said.
The forecast signed by Kawsar Parvin, deputy director of the meteorological department, further said moderate to dense fog could prevail in the river basin from late night to morning, which could disrupt navigations of water vessels.
