Continued Showery and Windy Conditions Expected Over Sri Lanka

The prevailing showery and windy conditions over Sri Lanka are expected to persist due to the active Southwest Monsoon, according to the Meteorology Department.

Showers will occur at times in the Western, Sabaragamuwa, Central, and Southern provinces, with several spells of showers expected in the North-western province. Fairly heavy showers, exceeding 50 mm, are likely in some areas within the Western and Sabaragamuwa provinces, as well as in the Nuwara-Eliya district.

In the evening or night, showers or thundershowers are expected in a few locations within the Uva, North-central, and Eastern provinces.

Strong winds, ranging from 40-50 kmph, are anticipated over the western slopes of the central hills, and in the North-central, Western, Southern, and North-western provinces, as well as in the Trincomalee and Monaragala districts.

Sea Areas:

The sea areas surrounding the island will be rough or very rough due to the active Southwest Monsoon. Naval and fishing communities are advised against venturing into the sea areas extending from Mannar to Pottuvil via Colombo, Galle, and Hambantota, and to remain vigilant in other sea areas around the island.

Wave heights may increase to about 2.5 to 3.5 meters in the sea areas off the coast, extending from Kalpitiya to Hambantota via Colombo and Galle. Consequently, there is a possibility of surges in the nearshore sea areas extending from Kalpitiya to Matara via Colombo and Galle due to sea waves.
