Due to the impact of Fani there was country wide rain fall including the capital city after a continuous heat wave for two weeks that paralyzed the whole country. The temperature also came down slightly. But after Fani the whole country it appears is burning by the prickly sun stroke. The worst sufferers are those who are fasting during the month of Ramadan. The farmers also cannot work in the field due to such heat. So all are waiting when there will be raining.

The Meteorological department is giving some hope that there will be raining either on Sunday(May 12) or Monday (May 13). The Weather men said that It will rain or rain with thunder shower in the whole country. This may reduce the heat level.

On Friday (May 10) though there was heat in the capital city but some cloud peeped with increase of day time. There was wind blowing at a speed of 10-12 kilometers. Though this wind has been blowing for the last two days it could not reduce the temperature.

Weather expert Nazmul Haque told Barta24.com that there are ninety percent possibilities of rain fall around the whole country on Sunday night or Monday morning. This will give some respite to the people reducing the temperature.

He further informed that this rain may continue for five days. But after that the mercury will again go upward. As it is summer time the whole season will be under heat wave either mild or strong.
