Fairly cloudy skies, few showers today


Fairly cloudy skies can be expected in the Central, Southern, Western, Sabaragamuwa, Uva and Eastern provinces today (17), says the Met Department.

Showers or thundershowers will occur at a few places in the Western, Sabaragamuwa, Southern and Uva provinces and in the Nuwara Eliya and Kandy districts after 2.00 pm.

A few showers will occur in the coastal areas of the Southern province in the morning too, while mainly fair weather will prevail elsewhere.

The Department requests the public to take adequate precautions to minimize damage caused by temporary localized strong winds and lightning during thundershowers.
