Meteorology Department yesterday (28) predicted that showers or thundershowers can be expected in several parts of the country today (29).

Showers or thundershowers could occur in several places in the Western Sabaragamuwa, Central and North Western Provinces as well as the Galle and Matara Districts after 2.00p.m. or in the night.

Fairly heavy showers above 50mm can be expected at some places in these regions. 

The Met Department cautioned against possible temporary heavy winds and lightning strikes and warned the public to take adequate precautionary measures to minimise damage caused by temporary heavy winds and lightning strikes.

Showers or thundershowers could occur at a few places in the deep and shallow seas off the coast of Puttalam extending to Galle via Colombo.

Wind velocity is expected to be from 20 to 30 kmph from the South-Westerly to The South-Easterly direction in the seas surrounding the island.
