 1 Dec. 2011- Dhaka – Three boats cross the bank of the Buriganga river in the winter morning Old Dhaka. November through February is the winter season in Bangladesh. Average temperatures in January vary from about 11°C in the northwestern and northeastern parts of the country to 20°C to 21°C in the coastal areas. Northern Bangladesh is cooler than southern Bangladesh, with occasional cold spells that claim lives. During this season, a centre of high pressure lies over the northwestern part of India (Himalayan zone). © Monirul Alam
