A risk of an increase in wind speeds

The MET Department says that showers and strong winds can be experienced in the Western slopes of the Central hills due to the Paileen storm prevalent in the Bay of Bengal.

 

Duty Meteorologist Anusha Warnasuriya stated that the storm was located 1100 KM’s North East from Jaffna.

 

As a result showers can be experienced along with strong winds in Western, Sabaragamuwa and Central Provinces.
