The depression over Southwest Bay of Bengal has entered through the east coast of Sri Lanka and it is moving across the country.

Therefore, cloudy sky will prevail over most parts of the island and showers or thundershowers will occur at times in Northern, North-Central and Eastern provinces.

Sowers or thundershowers will occur elsewhere during the afternoon or night.

Heavy showers above 100mm are likely at some places in Northern, North-Central, Eastern and Uva provinces and in Puttalam district.

Strong winds about (40-50) kmph can be expected at times over the Northern, North-Central, Eastern and North-Western provinces.

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