Local Heavy rains, strong winds likely until tomorrow evening

The Met Department is forecasting heavy rains and strong winds to prevail until tomorrow (12) evening.

Heavy showers of over 100 mm can be expected at some places in the Western, Sabaragamuwa, Central and Northwestern provinces and the Galle and Matara districts.

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

Also, the wind speed can increase up to 70 kmph in the sea area off the south and southeast of Sri Lanka and deep sea areas of southwest Bay of Bengal.

These sea areas will be very rough at times and may experience surges due to the effect of swell waves, having 2.5-3.0 m heights.

The Department requests the naval and fishing communities to remain vigilant in this regard.
