In the Sabaragamuwa Province, Galle, Matara, and Kalutara districts, fairly heavy showers of approximately 100mm are anticipated in certain areas. Simultaneously, the North-Western province can expect several spells of showers.
As the day progresses, Uva and Central provinces, along with Ampara and Batticaloa districts, may witness showers or thundershowers in the evening or at night.
