Several spells of showers expected across the island


Several spells of showers are expected in the North-Western province and in the Gampaha, Colombo, Kandy, Nuwara-Eliya, Kegalle, Rathnapura, Kaluthara, Galle and Matara districts.

A few showers may occur in the Jaffna district too, the Meteorological Department reported.

Moreover, showers or thundershowers will occur at a few places in the Uva province and in the Ampara and Batticaloa districts towards the latter part of the day.

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