Winter (October-March) is cool and mild.  Summer (March-June) is hot and humid.  The monsoon season (June-October) brings most of Bangladesh's yearly rain; floods, tidal waves, and cyclones are common.  Bangladesh has one of the wettest climates in the world.  Most places get more than 1,525 mm a year, and people near the hills get 5,080 mm.  January is the coolest month with temperatures around 78 degrees F, and the warmest month is April with temps around 91-96 degrees F.

Geography

Bangladesh is about the same size as Wisconsin.  Rivers and channels run through the country; the three largest rivers are the Padma, Jamuna, and Meghna.  It's mostly fertile deltas and flat land with a few hilly areas in the southeast and northeast.
