Maritime ports of Chittagong, Cox's Bazar, Mongla and Payra have been advised to continue hoisting local cautionary signal number three as steep pressure gradient still lies over the North Bay, said a spokesman of Met office this morning. 

"Squally weather may affect the maritime ports, the North Bay and adjoining coastal areas of Bangladesh as steep pressure gradient lies over the North Bay," he told BSS adding, "All fishing boats and trawlers over the North Bay have been advised to come close to the coast and proceed with caution till further notice."
