Showers expected across the island


Several spells of showers will occur in the Western province and in the Galle and Matara districts today (21), the Meteorology Department reported.

Showers or thundershowers are also expected at several places elsewhere towards the afternoon or night, while fairly heavy showers above 75mm can be expected in the Sabaragamuwa, Central and Uva provinces.

Meanwhile, strong winds of about 40-50 kmph are likely to occur in the Hambantota 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.
