Weather of Bangladesh

Bangladesh has a subtropical monsoon climate with annual heavy rainfall. Fortunately, there are six seasons in Bangladesh, including the summer, the rainy season, autumn, late autumn, winter, and spring. Each season lasts approximately two months and has its own beauty and behavior in the environment. In general, the temperature decreases as low as 3°C in the winter and it increases to 40°C during the summer.

In the summer, the days are longer than the nights. These two months of summer (Baishakh and Jaistha) is the warmest season in Bangladesh. The negative side of the summer is – that it brings natural disasters, including Cyclones and Tornados. The winter is very enjoyable as it stays nearly 10ºC. Bangladesh observes this season as like celebrating the festival except for the helpless people without proper clothes. In general, the winter is the best season to visit Bangladesh.
