Colombo (LNW): The low-level atmospheric disturbance over the island still persists, and therefore, showers or thundershowers will occur at times over the coastal areas of Northern, North-Western, Western and Southern provinces, the Department of Meteorology said in its daily weather forecast today (14).
Showers or thundershowers will occur at several places in other provinces of the island after 02.00 p.m, the statement added.
Fairly heavy showers above 75mm are likely at some places in Western, Central, Sabaragamuwa, North-central and Northern provinces and in Galle and Matara districts.
The general public is kindly requested to take adequate precautions to minimise damages caused by temporary localised strong winds and lightning during thundershowers.
