Showers and windy weather to continue

http://www.topssrilanka.com/shared/images/news/2013-42/1576467078rain34.jpg


The Department of Meteorology says that a low pressure area is forming in the Bay of Bengal and therefore showery and windy weather will continue over the country and suburb sea areas.

Showers or thundershowers will be fairly widespread while fairly heavy falls (about 100mm) are also likely at some places. Fairly strong winds are expected at times over the country and neighbouring sea areas, it said.

There may be temporary localized strong winds during thundershowers, the department said requesting public to take adequate precautions to minimize the damages caused by lightning activities.

Showers or thundershowers will occur at times in the sea areas off the coast extending from Mannar to Matara via Galle and Jaffna to Trincomalee (northeastern sea areas).

Showers or thundershowers will occur at several places in the other sea areas around the island.

Winds will be Southwesterly and speed will be 30-40 km/hr and can strengthen up to 60kmph at times (up to 80kmph during  thundershowers).

Sea areas around the island will be fairly rough at times.
