Thundershowers accompanied by severe lightning are likely to occur this evening (18) in most provinces, says the Met Department.

Several places in the Western, Southern, Sabaragamuwa, Central, Uva and Eastern provinces and the Kurunegala and Polonnaruwa districts are likely to experience the adverse weather.

There may be temporary localized strong winds during thundershowers as well.

The Department requests the public to take adequate precautions to minimize damage caused by lightning activity.
