Bangladesh Storms in 2014 From Radar & Satellite

Here’s a look at some notable storms that took place in 2014 from our Radar archive.

These storms formed on an old outflow boundary and contained quite a strong core.



Here’s some storms that formed on the 12th of April in the north east.


A series of late night storms moved through the north central and north eastern parts of Bangladesh.


April 9th represented the most successful chase of the mission with a supercell intercepted near Bhairab Bazar.



On this day the Bangladesh Weather Expedition intercepted a supercell near Brahmanbaria.



These storms were later photographed in Comilla, Bangladesh. The storms northeast of Dhaka resulted in a severe wind event documented here.


A notable event took place with a severe storm moving  from Nepal and impacting the area late into the night with a bow echo.
