Heavy showers expected across the island


Showers or thundershowers will occur at several places in the Uva, Eastern, Central and North-Central provinces and in the Vavuniya and Mullaitivu districts towards the afternoon or later in the night.

However, thundershowers in the Uva, Eastern and North-Central provinces are expected to enhance towards the evening.

Meanwhile, several spells of fairly heavy showers, above 50mm, will occur in the Western, Sabaragamuwa and Northwestern provinces and in the Galle and Matara districts.

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