The depression in the Bay of Bengal has intensified in to a deep depression and now located to about 500km north of Kankasanturai, the Department of Meteorology stated.

“It is further moving away from the island,” it added.

There is a high possibility to sudden increase of rain in the South-western part of the country. If so, fairly heavy to very heavy rainfall (100mm-150mm) are also expected at some places. Strong windy conditions over the country and in the sea areas around the island will continue during next few days due to meeting of wind feeding to the system.

Showers or thunder showers will occur at times in North-Western, Western, Central and Sabaragamuwa provinces and in the Galle, Matara and Mannar districts.

Showers or thunder showers will occur at several places in the Anuradhapura and Hambanthota districts.

As there may be temporary localized strong winds during thundershowers general public was requested to take adequate precautions to minimize damages caused by lightning activity.
