Showers to enhance in Northwestern, Southwestern regions

The showery conditions over the Northwestern and Southwestern parts of the island are likely to enhance between today and tomorrow, the Meteorology Department stated.

Showers will occur at several places in Western, Sabaragamuwa, Southern, Central and Northwestern provinces; and showers or thundershowers will occur at several places in the Uva and Eastern provinces and in the Mullaitivu and Vavuniya districts after 2.00 pm, the department added.

The public has been requested to take adequate precautions to minimize damage caused by lightning and localized strong winds during thundershowers, they said.

The sun is going to be directly over the latitudes of Sri Lanka between August 28 and September 7 this year due to its apparent southward relative motion, the Meteorology Department added.

The nearest towns of Sri Lanka over which the sun is overhead today are Angulana, Kiragala, Bogawantalawa, Diyatalawa, and Kumbukkana, at about 12:09 p.m., they added.
