Afternoon thundershowers likely today
Atmospheric conditions are favorable for the formation of afternoon thundershowers over most parts of the island today (27), says the Met Department.
Showers or thundershowers will occur over most parts of the island in the afternoon.
Fairly heavy showers of more than 75 mm may occur at some places in the Western, Sabaragamuwa, Central and Uva provinces and in the Galle and Matara districts.
Showers may occur in the Northern and Eastern provinces in the morning too.
The Department requests the public to take adequate precautions to minimize damages caused by temporary localized strong winds and lightning during thundershowers.
