The climate of Dhaka (Bangladesh)
Dhaka is the largest city of Bangladesh with a population of over 10 million people. Dhaka is the capital of Bangladesh. Dhaka is centrally situated in Bangladesh on a fork of the River Dhaleswari. The city was founded in the 10th century AD, but didnít become the capital of Bangladesh until 1971. Dhaka has several historical sites. Among them are: the Dhakeswari temple, the Aurangabad fortress and the Bara Katra palace. Dhaka has a tropical monsoon climate (type Am) with dry and warm winters and hot, clammy and very wet summers. The monsoon period is from June till the second half of September. About 1,500 millimeters of rain falls during this period. This is about three quarters of the annual amount of 2,121 millimeters. It is always warm in Dhaka; January has maximum temperatures of 26 degrees Celsius on average. After this temperatures rapidly rise to 36 degrees in April which is the warmest month. From May average temperatures drop with 1 degree Celsius each month caused by the large amount of rain and the lack of sunshine. When the rainy season ends in the second part of October temperatures drop more rapidly because of the influence of relatively cold air coming from the north; the total hours of sunshine per day increase rapidly.
