COLOMBO (News 1st): Issuing a weather warning, the Department of Meteorology says that there is a high possibility of a sudden increase of wind speed up to 50-60 kmph in the Northern, North-Western provinces as well as in the Trincomalee and Matale districts particularly during the evening and night. The warning further reads that the wind speeds are likely to enhance up to 40-50 kmph in certain other places of the country.

The department further advises the fishing communities to be vigilant in this regard as the sea extending from Puttalam to Trincomalee via Mannar and Kankesanturai and the sea extending from Hambantota to Pottuvil is predicted to be very rough at times.
