The Met Department says that the prevailing showery weather and strong winds would recede from Monday.
 
The Director Athula Karunanayake said that fairly heavy falls above 75mm can be expected at some places in Central and Sabaragamuwa provinces and above 50mm can be expected in Kalutara, Galle, and Matara districts.
 
Meanwhile, the Disaster Management Centre said that Nuwara Eliya and Ratnapura districts could face a landslide risk if showers continue.
 
The Ministry of Power and Renewable Energy said that water levels of reservoirs used for hydro power generation have risen following heavy rains experienced in the western slopes of the Central Hills.
 
The Media Spokesperson of the Ministry Sulakshana Jayawardana requested people living in the vicinity of Kelani River and Kithulgala to be cautious as one out of the 14 sluice gates of Castlereagh Reservoir will be opened.
