Light Showers Expected in Northern and Eastern Provinces, Possibility of Thundershowers Island-wide

Several spells of light showers are expected in Northern and Eastern provinces while showers or thundershowers are possible at a few places in North-central, Central, and Uva provinces and elsewhere on the island after 2:00 p.m. today (13).

The Department of Meteorology says parts of the Western and Sabaragamuwa provinces, as well as Galle and Matara districts, are likely to receive fairly heavy showers of about 75mm.

Misty conditions can be expected at some places in Western, Central, Sabaragamuwa, and Uva provinces and in Galle and Matara districts during the morning.

The general public is advised to take adequate precautions to minimize damages caused by temporary localized strong winds and lightning during thundershowers.

On the apparent northward relative motion of the sun, it is going to be directly over the latitudes of Sri Lanka from 5 – 15 April this year. The nearest areas of Sri Lanka over which the sun is overhead today are Kumulamunai, Murikandi, Keridamadu, and Tanniyatttu around 12:10 p.m.

Sea Areas:

Showers will occur at a few places in the sea areas off the coast extending from Kankesanturai to Galle via Trincomalee, Batticaloa, and Hambantota. Showers or thundershowers will occur at several places in the other sea areas around the island in the evening or night.

Winds will be easterly or variable in direction and wind speed will be 15-30 kmph.

The sea areas around the island will be slight.

Temporarily strong gusty winds and very rough seas can be expected during thundershowers.
