Heavy showers and lightening expected today

Tuesday, 18 October 2016 - 8:59


Heavy showers are expected today as Inter Tropical Convergence Zone (ITCZ, the low pressure zone where the Northern and Southern hemispheric winds meet), is affecting the weather over the island, the Department of Meteorology stated.

Showers or thundershowers will occur at most parts of the island after 2.00 p.m.

Showers may occur in Western and Southern provinces in the morning too.

Fairly heavy falls (about 75-100 mm) are also likely at some places.
