Inter-monsoon conditions setting in

The Meteorological Department announced that inter-monsoon conditions are expected to establish gradually over the country during next few days.

Showers or thundershowers will occur at most parts of the island from tomorrow after 2.00 p.m. while a clear weather could be expected during the morning hours.

Showers will occur in the Western, Sabaragamuwa and Southern provinces and in the Jaffna, Mannar and Puttalam districts in the morning too.

Fairly heavy falls (about 50 to 75 mm) can be expected at some places in the Uva and Eastern provinces. During the period there will be a high possibility of lightning activities and temporary localised strong winds during thundershowers.

The public is requested to take adequate precautions to minimise damages.
