The Met Department says that the deep depression in the Arabian Sea, to the west of Sri Lanka is now located at 300 km to the west of Colombo.
 
It is likely to develop into a cyclonic storm within next few hours and move west-northwestward direction.
 
Hence, showery and windy condition (about 60-70 kmph) are expected over the island particularly in the South-western part, the Met Department said.

Sabaragamuwa, Central, Uva and Western provinces.
 
For sea areas
 
The release issued by the Met Department added that very heavy rains, very strong winds and very rough seas can be expected in the deep and shallow sea areas off the Western and Southern coasts.
 
The wind speed can increase up to 90-100 kmph at times.
 
Other sea areas are also likely to be fairly rough as the wind speed can increase up to 50-60 kmph at times.
 
The Naval and fishing communities are requested to be vigilant on adverse weather developments.
