The Met Department said that the low-pressure area in the vicinity of Sri Lanka is now located to the south of Sri Lanka.
 
It is likely to develop further and move to the west- Northwestward, towards the Arabian Sea.
 
Under the influence of the system, showers or thundershowers with cloudy conditions are expected to continue over most parts of the island and surrounding sea areas.
 
Fairly strong gusty winds of up to 50 kmph can be expected particularly over North, North-Central and North-Western provinces and in Galle, Matara and Trincomalee districts.
 
Sea areas around the island will be very rough at times as the wind speed increase up to 60-70 kmph at times.
 
Fairly heavy falls of 75-100 mm can be expected at some places particularly in Southern, Uva and Eastern provinces and in Matale and Polonnaruwa districts.
 
“There may be temporary localized strong winds during thundershowers”, the Met officials said.
 
The general public is kindly requested to take adequate precautions to minimize damages caused by lightning activity.
