Showers, rough seas to persist

Several spells of showers are expected to occur in the Western, Northwestern, Sabaragamuwa, Central, and Southern provinces, the Meteorology Department stated.

Showers or thundershowers may occur at several places in the Eastern and Uva provinces, as well as in the Mullaitivu District, after 2:00 p.m.

Wind speeds could rise up to 40 or 50kmph at times over the Western slopes of the Central Hills, as well as in the Hambantota District. The public is urged to take precautions against lightning and localised strong winds during thundershowers.

Meanwhile, the deep and shallow seas extending from Puttalam to Pottuvil via Colombo, Galle, Matara and Hambantota, could be rough at times. The other sea areas around the island could be fairly rough as well.

Swell waves could be between 2 and 2.5m height in the sea areas off the coast extending from Colombo to Hambantota via Galle. Naval personnel and the fishing community are therefore requested to be vigilant.
