Showers expected in several provinces

4 August, 2020

Showers will occur at times in Sabaragamuwa, Western and Central provinces and in Galle and Matara districts. Fairly heavy rainfalls above 50 mm are likely at some places in Sabaragamuwa and Central provinces, stated the Department of Meteorology.

Several spells of showers will occur in North-Western province.

Wind speed can increase up to (50-60) kmph at times over the island particularly in Northern, North-central and North-western provinces and in Hambantota, 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 who are living in coastal areas are requested to be vigilant in this regard.
