Showers expected at times in several provinces

The Severe Cyclonic Storm “MICHAUNG” (pronounced as “MIGJAUM”) over West-Central Bay of Bengal has crossed the Andhra Pradesh coast of India and this system is gradually weakening, according to the Meteorology Department.

Showers will occur at times in Western, Southern and North western provinces, particularly during the morning, it said.

Showers or thundershowers will occur at several places in Sabaragamuwa, Central, Eastern and Uva provinces after 02.00 p.m.

Misty Condition can be expected in Sabaragamuwa, Central and Uva provinces during the morning.

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

Sea Areas:

The impact of severe cyclonic storm “MIGJAUM” on the weather in the sea areas around the island is further reduced.

Showers or thundershowers will occur at several places in the sea areas off the coast extending from Puttalam to Hambantota via Mannar, Colombo and Galle. Showers or thundershowers will occur at several places in the other sea areas around the island particularly during the evening or night.

Winds will be South-westerly and wind speed will be 25-35 kmph in the sea areas around the island. Wind speed may increase up to 40-45 kmph in the sea areas off the coast extending from Chilaw to Mullaitivu via Mannar and Kankasanthurai and from Hambanthota to Pottuvil.

The sea areas off the coast extending from Chilaw to Mullaitivu via Mannar and Kankasanthurai and from Hambanthota to Pottuvil may be fairly rough at times.

Temporarily strong gusty winds and very rough seas can be expected during thundershowers.
