Torrential rain and strong winds forecast in the deep sea areas

The low-pressure area in the South Bay of Bengal to the South-east of Sri Lanka is likely to develop into a depression during the next 24 hours. The Department of Meteorology said that it is expected to move North-north-westwards, towards the Tamil-Nadu coast on 15th December. Naval and fishing communities are requested to be vigilant in this regard.
Mainly fair weather can be expected over most parts of the island. However, showers or thundershowers can be expected in several places in the Eastern province in the evening or night. Fairly strong gusty winds at times up to 40 kmph and fairly cold weather can be expected over the island.
Under the influence of the low-pressure system, there is a high possibility for heavy rainfalls, sudden roughness associated with the sudden increase of wind speed (up to 70-80 kmph) in the deep-sea areas off the coast extending from Hambantota to Kankesanturai via Pottuvil, Batticaloa and Trincomalee. Fishermen are advised not to venture into the deep-sea areas off the coast extending from Hambantota to Kankesanturai via Pottuvil, Batticaloa and Trincomalee until 15th December.
Showers or thundershowers will occur at several places in the sea area within the next 24 hours extending from Hambantota to Trincomalee via Pottuvil. Heavy showers can be expected at some places in the deep-sea areas. Winds will be North-easterly in the sea areas around the island and wind speed will be 30-40 kmph.
