Adverse weather to continue

The Meteorology Department forecast that due to the atmospheric disturbance over Sri Lanka, the adverse weather will continue over the South-western parts of the island and in the sea areas off the South-west coast, Duty Meteorologist Meryl Mendis told the Sunday Observer yesterday.

Showers or thundershowers will occur at times in the Central, Sabaragamuwa, Western, North-Western and Southern provinces.

Heavy downpours are expected and more than 100mm at some places, he said.

The deep and shallow sea areas off the coast extending from Mannar to Batticaloa via Colombo and Hambantota will be rough at times. Further, the wind velocity in these sea areas can strengthen up to 70kilometre per hour.

Naval and fishing communities are requested to be vigilant.

The coastal areas of Mannar, Batticaloa and Hambantota can experience fairly strong winds, Mendis said.

There may be temporary strong winds during thundershowers.

The public is requested to take adequate precautions to minimise the damage caused by lightning, he said.

Winds will be Southwesterly and the velocity will be 30-40 kilometre per hour. The sea areas around the island may be very rough at times as winds can strengthen up to 60-70 kilometre per hour at times.
