South-west monsoon conditions are getting established gradually over the island. Therefore, showery and windy conditions are expected to enhance over the Island (particularly in the South-western part) from tonight.

Showers will occur at times in Western, Southern, Central, Sabaragamuwa and North-western provinces and in Jaffna district.

Showers or thundershowers will occur at several places elsewhere particularly in the evening.

Heavy falls about 100 mm can be expected at some places in Sabaragamuwa, Central, Western and North-western provinces and in Galle and Matara districts.

Fairly heavy falls above 50 mm can be expected at some places in Eastern and Uva Provinces.

Fairly strong gusty winds up to 40-50 kmph are also likely over the country, particularly around the central hilly areas.

There may be temporary localized strong winds during thundershowers. General public is kindly requested to take adequate precautions to minimize damages caused by lightning activity.
