Colombo (News 1st) – The University of Colombo’s Department of Physics says Sri Lanka is currently experiencing it’s highest temperature in over 140 years.

Prof. Chandana Jayaratne stated that the unusual weather was a result of global warming, as well as El Nino weather phenomenon. He said this trend was likely to continue.

Yesterday, the Met Department issued yet another heat advisory – for the North Central North-Western Provinces, in addition to the Hambantota, Mannar, Vavuniya, Moneragala, Mullaitivu and Gampaha districts.

Thankfully the Department said today, 75 mm rainfalls can be expected across the Sabaragamuwa, Central, Uva and Southern provinces and in Kaluthara district.
