Showers or thundershowers are expected in several parts of the island towards the afternoon or night, the Meteorological Department reported.

Accordingly, heavy showers above 100 mm may occur in some places within the Central, Sabaragamuwa, Uva and Eastern provinces and in the Galle and Matara districts.

Meanwhile, fairly heavy showers above 50 mm are likely in other localities as well.

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