Heavy showers forecast today

6 September, 2020

The Meteorology Department has forecast showers or thundershowers in most parts of the island. Fairly heavy showers over 50 mm are likely at some places and the public are warned to take adequate precautions to minimise damage due to lightning and localised strong winds during thundershowers. The showers and winds over the island are expected to enhance today, a spokesman for the Department said.

The spokesman added that there would be heavy rainfall above 100 mm likely at some places in the Western, Sabaragamuwa and Central and Northwestern provinces and in Galle, Matara, Mullaitivu and the Mannar districts.

Wind speeds could increase up to (50-60) kmph, at times, across the country.
