Northern, North-Central, North Western Provinces to meet showery conditions further

The low-pressure area in the vicinity of the island is likely to move northwest ward and gradually move towards the Tamil Nadu area near the northern coast of Sri Lanka and therefore, rainy conditions over Northern, North-Central and North western provinces and Trincomalee district will expect to continue further, the Department of Meteorology said in a statement today (11).

Showers or thundershowers will occur at times in Northern, North-Central and North western provinces and in Trincomalee district. Heavy showers above 100 mm can be expected at some places.

Showers or thundershowers will occur elsewhere during the afternoon or night.

Heavy showers above 50 mm can be expected at some places.

Fairly strong winds about (40-50) kmph can be expected at times in the Northern, North Central and North western provinces.

General public is kindly requested to take adequate precautions to minimise damages caused by temporary localised strong winds and lightning during thundershowers

Marine Weather:

The low-pressure area in the vicinity of the island is likely to move northwest ward and gradually move towards the Tamil Nadu area near the northern coast of Sri Lanka. Naval and fishing communities are advised not to venture into the deep and shallow sea areas off the coast extending fromTrincomalee to Puttalam via Kankasanturai and Mannar.
Condition of Rain:
Showers or thundershowers will occur at times in the sea areas off the coast extending from Trincomalee to Puttalam via Kankasanturai and Mannar. Showers or thundershowers will occur other sea areas around the island during afternoon or night. 
Winds:
Winds will be North-easterly or variable in direction. Wind speed will be (20-30) kmph.  Wind speed may increase up to (50-60) kmph at times in the sea areas off the coast extending from Trincomalee to Puttalam via Kankasanturai and Mannar.
State of Sea:
The sea areas off the coast extending from Trincomalee to Puttalam via Kankasanturai and Mannar will be rough. The other sea areas around the island will be fairly rough at times. There is a possibility that near shore sea areas off the coast extending from Trincomalee to Mannar via Kankasanturai may experience surges due to the effect of swell waves with (2.0-2.5) m height. Temporarily strong gusty winds and very rough seas can be expected during thundershowers.
