Weather: Fairly heavy showers expected today
The Department of Meteorology stated that showers or thundershowers will occur at several places over most parts of the island in the afternoon or night today (18).
Showers will occur in the Southern Province and in coastal areas of the Western Province in the morning too.
Fairly heavy showers above 50mm can be expected at some places in the Southern, Sabaragamuwa, Central and Uva Provinces and in the Kaluthara District.
The Department requests the general public to take adequate precautions to minimise damages caused by temporary localised strong winds and lightning during thundershowers.
