It is further moving away from the island. Strong windy conditions over the country and in the sea areas around the island will continue during next few days due to the meeting of wind feeding to the system.

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.

Showers or thunder showers will occur at times in Kandy, Rathnapura, Kurunegala, Nuwara-eliya, Kegalle, Matale and Kalutara districts, Met Dept. added further.
