Weather: Intermittent showers expected
The Meteorological Department stated that intermittent showers are expected in the Sabaragamuwa, Western and Central Provinces, and in the Galle and Matara Districts today (03).
Fairly heavy rainfall, above 50 mm, is likely at some places. Several spells of showers will also occur in the North-Western Province.
Wind speeds may increase up to 60kmph at times in the North-Central Province, the Puttalam, Hambantota, Mannar, Trincomalee and Matale Districts, and along the western slopes of the central hills.
Coastal inundation is likely along the coast extending from Beruwala to Hambantota via Galle due to the effect of swell waves. People living in coastal areas are requested to be vigilant in this regard.
