Cloudy skies & showers expected


Cloudy skies are expected in the southern half of the island, while several spells of showers will occur in the Western, Sabaragamuwa and North-Western provinces and in the Galle and Matara districts.

The Meteorology Department further stated that showers or thundershowers will occur at several places elsewhere towards the afternoon.

Fairly heavy showers of over 50 mm can be expected at some places.

Strong winds of about 40-50 kmph can be expected at times in Galle and Matara districts.

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