Prevailing showery condition is expected to further enhance across the island due to the low-pressure area over southeast Bay of Bengal, the Department of Meteorology said in its forecast today.

As such, showers or thundershowers are anticipated today in the Northern, North-central and Eastern provinces.

Meanwhile, heavy showers of about 100mm are likely at some places in the Eastern Province and Polonnaruwa and Mullaitivu districts.

Showers or thundershowers will occur at several places in other provinces of the island after 1:00 p.m. Fairly heavy showers of about 75mm are likely at some places in Western and Sabaragamuwa provinces and Galle and Matara districts.

Showers may occur in the Southern Province during the morning too.

The members of the public are advised to take adequate precautions to minimize damages caused by temporary localized strong winds and lightning during thundershowers.
