The Education Ministry says schools in the Western, Southern, Central and Uva provinces will be closed today (30) due to bad weather.

Meanwhile, the Met Department said that the depression in the south-west of Sri Lanka has developed into a deep depression and it is located 200 km away from Colombo.

It is expected to develop further and move to the Arabian Sea area.

Hence, heavy rains and gusty strong winds (about 60-70 kmph) can be expected over the island, and heavy rains, strong winds, and rough seas can be expected further in the deep and shallow sea areas around the island too.

Showers or thundershowers will occur most parts of the island.

Very heavy falls (about 100-150 mm) are predicted at some places in the Southern, Sabaragamuwa, Central, Western and Uva provinces.

The Met Office also said that heavy rains, strong winds, and rough seas can be expected further in the deep and shallow sea areas around the island (particularly in the Western and Southern sea areas).

The wind speed will be 50-60 kmph.

The sea area around the island will be rough and, the Western and Southern sea areas can be very rough at times as the wind speed can increase up to 90-100 kmph at times.

The Naval and fishing communities are requested to be vigilant in this regards.
