Weather Advisory for Western, Sabaragamuwa, and Central Provinces

Source
The Department of Meteorology has released a weather forecast indicating the possibility of showers or thundershowers in select regions of Sri Lanka. Residents in Western, Sabaragamuwa, Central, and North-western provinces, as well as Galle, Matara, and Mullaitivu districts, should anticipate precipitation in the evening or at night. Additionally, a few showers may occur in the Southern province and along the Western coastal areas during the morning. With regard to the anticipated weather conditions, the general public is advised to take necessary precautions to mitigate any potential damages caused by temporary localized strong winds and lightning during thundershowers. Regarding maritime areas, the Department of Meteorology predicts showers or thundershowers in a few locations off the coast extending from Colombo to Matara via Galle. Winds over the sea area surrounding the island will be south-westerly, with speeds ranging from 20 to 30 kmph. However, it is important to note that wind speeds may increase up to 40-50 kmph periodically in the sea areas off the coast extending from Puttalam to Kankasanthurai via Mannar, as well as in the sea areas off the coast extending from Hambantota to Pottuvil. Consequently, these regions may experience fairly rough sea conditions at times. During thundershowers, temporary strong gusty winds and very rough seas can be expected. Therefore, caution is advised for individuals planning to engage in maritime activities in the affected areas. The Department of Meteorology continues to monitor the weather conditions closely and urges the public to stay updated on the latest advisories to ensure their safety and well-being.
