Showers or thundershowers will occur at a few places in Uva, Central, Western and Sabaragamuwa provinces and in Galle and Matara districts after 2.00 p.m. Fairly heavy falls  about 50mm are likely at some places. 

Showers can be expected at a few places in Eastern province. 

General public is kindly requested to take adequate precautions to minimize damages caused by temporary localized strong winds and lightning during thundershowers.
