Prevailing rainy condition to enhance from today

Northeast monsoon conditions are gradually establishing over the country, said the Department of Meteorology.

Therefore prevailing showery condition in the Northern and Eastern parts of the country is likely to enhance further particularly from tonight. Cloudy skies can be expected over the island.

Showers or thundershowers will occur at times in Northern, Eastern, North-central and Uva provinces and Hambanthota district. Showers or thundershowers will occur elsewhere after 1.00 p.m.

Heavy showers about 100-150 mm are likely at some places in Northern, Eastern, Uva and North-Central provinces (particularly in Batticaloa, Ampara, Jaffna, Polonnaruwa, Badulla, Trincomalee and Mannar districts). Fairly heavy showers about 75-100 mm are likely at some places in Sabaragamuwa, Western, Central and Southern provinces.

Wind speed can be increased up to (40-50) kmph at times in Central hilly areas, Northern, North-central, North-western and Southern provinces and in Trincomalee district.

Misty conditions can be expected at some places in Western and Sabaragamuwa provinces during the morning.

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