Showers, strong winds today in several provinces


Several spells of showers will occur in the Western, Sabaragamuwa and Central provinces and in the Galle and Matara districts today (20), says the Met Department.

Showers or thundershowers will occur at a few places in the Uva province and in the Batticaloa, and Ampara districts after 2.00 pm.

The wind speed can increase up to 40 kmph at times in the Northern and North-central provinces and in the Hambantota district.

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