The Department of Meteorology stated that showers and thundershowers may occur sporadically in the Northern, North-Central, and Eastern Provinces.
The Met Department predicted that the inclement weather conditions will continue at a reduced level in these areas, while showers and thundershowers are to be expected elsewhere in the afternoon. Fairly strong gusts (up to 50 kilometres per hour) are also expected in the Western, Sabaragamuwa, and Uva Provinces and in the Ampara and Batticaloa Districts. There may be temporary localized strong wind during thundershowers. The general public has been requested to take adequate precaution to minimize damage caused by lightning.
