Showers or thundershowers will also occur in several places in the Uva and Eastern provinces in the evening or at night, the Meteorology Department reported.

Strong winds of about 50-60 km/h can be expected at times over the western slopes of the central hills and in the Northern, North-Central, Western, Southern, and North-Western provinces, as well as in the Trincomalee district.

Fairly strong winds of about 30-40 km/h can be expected at times elsewhere on the island.
