Chill in Rajshahi

Monday, January 18, 2010
Bone-chilling cold coupled with mists and winds paralysed the normal life in the district yesterday.

Meteorologist Bazlar Rashid observed that the chill increased due to sharp fall in the maximum temperature and reduction in difference between highest and lowest temperatures.

The gap between highest and lowest temperatures were 4.4 degree Celsius on Saturday while it went down to 3.4 degree yesterday, said Rashid.

The severity of cold forced most people to stay indoors affecting businesses, education, office and normal activities.

Paddy growers expressed anxiety as their boro seedbeds were being affected greatly while the potato growers were happy expecting a good harvest due to the chill.
