The Meteorology Department has said that showers and thundershowers are expected in several areas in North-Central, Eastern and Uva Provinces and in Mullaitivu, Vavuniya and Matale Districts after 02:00 p.m. 

Some areas particularly North-central Province and in Trincomalee Districts are likely to receive fairly heavy showers above 50mm. 

Light showers may occur at a few places in Western and Sabaragamuwa provinces and in Galle and Matara Districts. 

The Department requests the public to take adequate precautions to minimise damages caused by temporary localized strong winds and lightning during thundershowers.
