South-West Monsoon Brings Showers and Strong Winds to Sri Lanka

According to the Department of Meteorology’s weather forecast for Friday (June 09), the south-west monsoon has now settled over the island. As a result, showers or thundershowers are expected intermittently in the Western and Sabaragamuwa provinces, as well as in the districts of Galle, Matara, Kandy, and Nuwara-Eliya. In specific areas of the Sabaragamuwa Province and the districts of Galle, Matara, and Kalutara, fairly heavy showers exceeding 75mm are anticipated. Additionally, the North-Western province will experience several spells of showers. During the evening or night, showers or thundershowers will occur in various locations within the Uva province, as well as in Ampara and Batticaloa districts. Northern and North-Central provinces, along with Hambantota, Puttalam, and Trincomalee districts, should expect strong winds ranging from 40-45 kmph at times. To minimize potential damages caused by temporary localized strong winds and lightning during thundershowers, the Department of Meteorology urges the public to take adequate precautions.
