Rainy conditions are expected to be continued in the Northern, Eastern, Uva, Central and Southern provinces today, and cloudy skies can be expected over most parts of the island.
Showers will occur at times in Northern, Eastern, Uva, Central, Southern and North-central provinces. Heavy rainfall above 100 mm can be expected at some places.
Showers are likely in the other areas of the island during the morning. Showers or thundershowers will occur at several places in these areas after 1.00 p.m.
The public is kindly requested to take adequate precautions to minimize damages caused by temporary localized strong winds and lightning during thundershowers.
Due to the active cloudiness in the Southern Sea areas, the possibility for heavy showers/thundershowers and sudden roughness, associated with sudden increase of wind speed up to (70-80) kmph in the sea areas off the coast extending from Galle to Batticaloa via Matara and Hambantota is high.
Naval and fishing communities are also requested to be vigilant in this regard.
