Weather today: Showery condition to enhance
The Department of Meteorology expects the showery condition to enhance from today (23) due to the low-level atmospheric disturbance developing in the vicinity of the island.
Showers or thundershowers will occur at times in the Northern, North-Central, Eastern, Uva and North-Western provinces and in the Matale district.
Fairly heavy showers of more than 75 mm can be expected at some places in the Northern, North-Central and Eastern provinces.
Showers or thundershowers will occur in several places elsewhere in the afternoon or night.
Fairly heavy showers of more than 50 mm can be expected at some places in the Sabaragamuwa province and in the Kandy and Nuwara Eliya districts.
The Department requests the public to take adequate precautions to minimize damages caused by temporary localized strong winds and lightning during thundershowers.
