The cyclone named OCKHI in the Arabian Sea is now located at about 600km to the west of Colombo and moving further away from the island.
 
The Met Department says hence its effect on the country is expected to be lessening gradually.
 
Showers or thundershowers will occur over most parts of the island.
 
Heavy falls above 100mm can be expected at some places in the Northern, North-central, Uva, Southern, Western, Sabaragamuwa and Central provinces.
 
Fairly strong gusty winds up to 50kmph can be expected in the Western, Southern and Sabaragamuwa provinces.
 
There may be temporary localized strong winds during thundershowers.
 
The general public is requested to take adequate precautions to minimize damages caused by lightning activity.
 
The Department added that due to an active cloudiness in the Western and southern sea areas of the island heavy rains, strong winds and rough seas can be expected in the deep and shallow sea areas off the Western and Southern coasts and the wind speed can increase up to 70-80 kmph at times.
 
Other sea areas are also likely to be fairly rough as the wind speed can increase up to 50 kmph at times.
 
“Showers or thundershowers will occur at times in the sea areas around the island and heavy showers will occur in the Western and Southern sea areas”, it added.
 
Winds will be the south-westerly direction in the sea area off the coast extending from Mannar to Pottuvil via Colombo and Galle, wind speed will be 40-50 kmph.
 
Winds will be variable in direction and wind speed will be 30-40kmph in other sea areas around the island.
 
In this context, the Met Department is urging the Naval and fishing communities to be vigilant.
