Thundershowers are expected to develop at a few places in the Eastern and Uva provinces during the afternoon or evening. Strong winds can be expected throughout the country and surrounding sea areas at times, the department cautioned.

Meanwhile, an individual has died after being struck by lightning in the Komari area in Pottuvil. Police say, the deceased had been in a cattleshed when he was struck by lightning on Monday evening.
