Showery conditions to continue Featured

The Meteorology Department noted that the prevailing showery condition over the island is expected to continue during the next few days.

It added that several spells of showers will occur in Western, Sabaragamuwa, Southern and North-western provinces.

Meanwhile, showers or thundershowers will occur elsewhere after 2.00 pm and fairly heavy rainfall above 75 mm is likely at some places.

Showers or thundershowers will occur at several places in the sea areas around the island, the Meteorology Department stated.

The sea area extending from Hambantota to Pottuvil and the sea area extending from Puttalam to Kankesanturai via Mannar can be rough at times as the wind speed can increase up to (50-55) kmph at times.

Temporarily strong gusty winds (up to 70-80 kmph) and very rough seas can be expected during thundershowers.
