Strong wind and rough

Sunday, 18 August 2019

General public is kindly requested to take adequate precautions to minimize damages caused by temporary localized strong winds and lightning since the possibility for afternoon thundershowers is high particularly in Northern, North-central, North-western, Uva and Eastern provinces.

Showers or thundershowers will occur at times in Jaffna, Mannar and Killinochchi districts. Several spells of showers will occur in Western, Central and Sabaragamuwa provinces and in Galle and Matara districts. Showers or thundershowers will occur at several places elsewhere after 2.00 pm. Fairly heavy falls about 75 mm are likely at some places in Jaffna, Mannar and Killinochchi districts and about 50 mm are likely at some places in Sabaragamuwa and Central provinces
