Southwest Monsoon flow is likely to strengthen from 01st August onwards. Hence showery and windy conditions are likely to enhance in the western and southern sea areas and over the southwest quarter of the island during next few days.

Showers or thundershowers will occur at times in Western, Sabaragamuwa, Northern and North-Western provinces and in Kandy, Nuwara-Eliya, Galle and Matara districts . Heavy falls above 100 mm can be expected at some places in aforesaid areas. Showers or thundershowers may occur at several places in Uva province and in the Ampara district during the afternoon or night.

Strong winds about 50 kmph can be expected at times in the western slopes of the Central hills and Southern provinces.

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