A searing heat is being experienced by most areas in the island at present.

This heat is sometimes experienced even during rain fall.

We made inquiries in this regard from duty meteorologist at the met department merryl mendis.

He stated that the decrease of wind currents is to be attributed to this situation. He also mentioned that western, sabaragamuwa, central & southern parts of the island could expect thunder showers during the night.

However heavy showers have been experienced in kandy this afternoon.

Duty meteorologist at the met department merryl mendis expressed these views to our news.

Meanwhile several sluice gates of the kothmale reservoir have been opened.

According to the Nuwara eliya district secretary d.p.g. kumarasiri the sluice gates have been opened due to the river's estuary's areas receiving heavy showers.
