Climate • Bangladesh, one of the wettest places on the planet, is hot and rainy in the summer months. Most of the rain (often over 60 inches per year), falls during the monsoon season (June - September). In contrast, very little rain falls in the cooler months (November - February). March, April and May are the warmest months with high temps near 90f. Winter lows seldom fall below 55f.
