Afternoon thundershowers to continue
Atmospheric conditions are favorable for the formation of afternoon thundershowers over most parts of the island today (28), says the Met Department.
Showers or thundershowers will occur over most parts of the island after 1.00 pm.
Heavy showers of more than 100 mm may occur at some places in the Western, Sabaragamuwa, Central, Northwestern and Uva provinces and in the Galle, Matara and Mannar districts.
Showers may occur in the Northern and Eastern provinces and in Galle, Matara and Kaluthara district 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.
