Showers expected in several provinces

Showers will occur at times in Sabaragamuwa, Western and Central provinces and in Galle and Matara districts, the Meteorology Department states.

Several spells of showers are expected in the North-Western province while fairly heavy rainfalls above 50 mm are likely at some places.

Wind speed can increase up to 60 kmph at times in North-central province, Puttalam, Hambantota, Mannar, 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.
