Department of Meteorology says due to a low-level atmospheric disturbance in the vicinity of Sri Lanka, the showery condition is expected to continue further.
Showers or thundershowers will occur over most parts of the Island during the afternoon or night.
Showers will occur in Northern, Western and North-western provinces and Galle and Matara districts during the morning.
Heavy showers over 150mm can be expected at some places in Western, Sabaragamuwa, Central, North-western, Uva and Northern provinces and Heavy showers about 100mm can be expected elsewhere.
The general public is kindly requested to take adequate precautions to minimize damages caused by temporary localized strong winds and lightning during thundershowers.
Condition of Rain:
Showers or thundershowers will occur in several places in the sea areas around the island.
Winds will be north-westerly to westerly in direction. Wind speed will be (20-30) kmph.
Wind speed may increase up to 50 kmph at times in the sea areas off the coast extending from Puttalam to Trincomalee via Kankasanturai and Mullaitivu.
State of Sea:
The sea areas off the coast extending from Puttalam to Trincomalee via Kankasanturai and Mullaitivu will be fairly rough at times. The other sea areas around the island will be slight.
There is a higher chance of the occurrence of thundershowers in the sea areas off the coast extending from Batticaloa to Colombo via Trincomalee, Kankasanturai, and Puttalam due to the development of low-level atmospheric disturbance in the vicinity of Sri Lanka.
Therefore, naval and fishing communities are requested to be vigilant during the activities in the aforementioned sea areas since there can be temporarily strong gusty winds and very rough seas during thundershowers.
