There can be very heavy showers or thundershowers, strong winds (40-50) kmph gusting up to 60 kmph associated with rough seas over the aforementioned sea area and the sea areas around the Island.

Naval and fishing communities out at sea over South-West Bay of Bengal, deep and shallow sea areas around the Island are advised to be vigilant in this regard during next few days.

Cloudy skies can be expected over the Sri Lanka.

Showers or thundershowers will occur at times in the most part of the island. Heavy rains about 100 mm can be expected at some places in Northern, North-Central, Eastern, Uva, Sabaragamuwa, Central and Southern provinces.

Fairly heavy showers above 75 mm can be expected at some places elsewhere.

There is a high probability of occurring flood situations in lowline flood prone areas of several rivers.
