The general public is requested to take adequate precautions to minimize damages caused by lightning activity and localized strong winds during thundershowers.
Showers will occur at several places in the sea areas extending from Mullaitivu to Hambantota via Kankesanturai, Puttalam, Colombo and Galle.
