South-west monsoon is established over the island. Therefore, showery and windy conditions are expected to enhance further (particularly in the South-western part).

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

Heavy falls about 100-150 mm can be expected at some places (particularly in Kaluthara, Rathnapura, Galle, Matara, Gampaha and Kegalle districts).

Showers or thundershowers may occur at several places elsewhere over the island.

Fairly strong gusty winds up to 50 kmph are also likely over the country, particularly in western slope of the central hilly areas and Northern, North-central and Uva province and in Puttalam, Ampara and Batticaloa districts and strong winds up to 60 kmph are also likely over the Jaffna district and Pottuvil area.

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.
