Climate

Warm temperatures are found year-round throughout Bangladesh, with not much change, although January seems to be the coolest month (66 F/19 C) while May tends to be the warmest (84 F/ 29 C).  Bangladesh has a tropical monsoon climate, with most of the rainfall for the year occurring during the monsoon period.  The average precipitation ranges from  as much as 200 inches (5,080 mm) to as little as 55 inches (1,400 mm). 

Monsoon season lasts from May to October, with destructive cyclones occurring from April to May and again from September to November.  The cyclones cause many deaths and a lot of destruction, particularly with the surging waves that come along with them.  One of the worst natural disasters of the 20th century was caused by a cyclone that struck Bangladesh in November 1970.  In this storm about 500,000 people died, while in 1991, over 120,000 people died when a cyclone struck the Ganges delta.
