Showers or thundershowers will occur today (18) at several places in most parts of the island after 2.00 pm, says the Met Department.

Showers will occur in the Western province and in the Galle and Matara districts in the morning.

Heavy showers of more than 100mm can be expected at some places in the Sabaragamuwa, Central, Southern, Eastern and Uva provinces and in the Polonnaruwa district.

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