Showery conditions willcontinue to prevail over the island in the next few days

The prevailing showery condition would continue over the island during the next few days due to the low-level atmospheric disturbance in the Bay of Bengal to the South-east of Sri Lanka.
The Department of Meteorology said the North-east monsoon is gradually getting established over the country. A low-level atmospheric disturbance had formed in the Bay of Bengal to the South-east of Sri Lanka and it would be likely to develop into a low-pressure area during the next few days. The Met Department said that showers or thundershowers may occur at times in Northern, Eastern, North-central and Uva Provinces and in Hambantota district.
Heavy falls about 100mm can be expected at some places in the Central, Eastern, Uva, Sabaragamuwa and Southern provinces. The Met Department further stated that misty conditions might occur at some places in Central, Sabaragamuwa and Western provinces during the morning.
As there might be temporary localized strong winds during thundershowers, the public were called upon to take adequate precautions to minimize damages caused by lightning activity.
The Department of Meteorology further mentioned that the sSea areas off the coast extending from Colombo to Mannar via Puttalam and the sea area extending from Matara to Pottuvil via Hambantota can be fairly rough at times as the wind speed can increase up to 50 kmph.
Naval and fishing communities were also called upon to be cautious in this respect.
