Spells of showers expected across the island


Several spells of showers will occur in the Western, Sabaragamuwa and North-Western provinces and in the Nuwara-Eliya, Kandy, Galle and Matara districts.

Meanwhile, showers or thundershowers are also likely in several places in the Uva, Eastern and North-Central provinces and in the Mullaitivu district towards the afternoon.

Strong winds of about 40-50 kmph can be expected at times in the Southern province.

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