Due to the active cloudiness in the deep and shallow sea areas off the coast extending from Trincomalee to Colombo via Batticaloa, Hambantota and Galle, sudden roughness of the sea areas associated with sudden increase of wind speed (up to 70-80kmph) is possible, the Department of Meteorology states.

The Department added that showers or thundershowers will occur at times in the sea area off the coast extending from Trincomalee to Colombo via Batticaloa, Hambantota and Galle. A few showers can be expected in the other sea areas.

Winds will be north-easterly in direction and speed will be 30-40 kmph.

Meanwhile, the prevailing showery condition is expected to further enhance during next few days (particularly during 1st and 2nd of March).

Cloudy skies along with showers or thundershowers can be expected at times over most parts of the country.

Fairly heavy showers (above 50mm) are also likely at some places, especially in the Eastern, Uva, Sabaragamuwa and Southern provinces.
