According to the Department of Meteorology, the depression in the Bay of Bengal has intensified in to a cyclonic storm and now located about 600km north of Kankasanturai. It is further moving away from the island.

The Department added that there is a high possibility to sudden increase of rain in the South-western part of the country. If so, heavy rainfall between 100-150mm is expected at some places.

Strong windy conditions over the country and in the sea areas around the island will continue during next few days due to meeting of wind feeding to the system.

Furthermore, showers or thunder showers will occur at times in North-Western, Western, Central and Sabaragamuwa provinces and in the Galle, Matara and Mannar districts.

Showers or thunder showers will occur at several places in the Anuradhapura and Hambanthota districts.
