Due to the active cloudiness in the sea area to the south-east and East of Sri Lanka, heavy showers or thundershowers will occur in the sea areas extending from Trincomalee to Hambantota via Potuvil.

The possibility for heavy showers or thundershowers and sudden roughness, associated with sudden increase of wind speed (up to 70-80 kmph) in the above given deep and shallow sea areas is high. Naval and fishing communities are requested to be vigilant in this regard in the above sea areas.

Showers or thundershowers will occur at times in Northern, North-Central, Eastern and Uva provinces and in Matale and Nuwara-Eliya districts. Fairly heavy showers about 75mm can be expected at some places.

Showers or thundershowers will occur at several places in Western, Sabaragamuwa and North- Western provinces and in Kandy, Galle and Matara districts during the evening or night.

General public is kindly requested to take adequate precautions to minimize damages caused by temporary localized strong winds and lightning during thundershowers.
