The Department of Meteorology has issued a statement saying that there may be several periods of rain in the Weste , Sabaragamuwa and North-Weste provinces and Kandy, Nuwara Eliya, Galle and Matara districts.
In the weste slopes of the central hills, strong winds around 50kmh are possible.
Meanwhile, the sea areas off the coast from Puttalam to Trincomalee via Mannaram and Kankasanthurai and from Hambantota to Pothuvil are rough from time to time.
From Puttalam to Colombo, through Galle to Hambantota, the sea areas off the coast can be quite rough at times.
The rest of the sea areas around the island can be a bit rough.
From Puttalam to Hambantota via Colombo and Galle, there is a possibility of sea wave height (about 2.0 - 2.5 meters) rising in the offshore areas.
The fishing and marine community are kindly requested to pay attention to this matter.
