Colombo (News 1st); The cyclonic storm ‘ BUREVI’ over the south-west Bay of Bengal is 200 km east-southeast of Trincomalee at 0830 hrs today (02nd December).

The system is very likely to move west-northwestwards and cross north-eastern coast of Sri Lanka between Trincomalee and Point-Pedro, close to Mullaithivu around tonight(within 7.00 p.m-10.00 p.m on 02 December ).

This Cyclonic storm with a wind speed of 80-90 kmph gusting up to 100 kmph is very likely to move nearly westwards thereafter, emerge into Gulf of Mannar by tomorrow morning (December 03).

As such, intermittent showers/thundershowers, strong or very strong gusty winds and rough or very rough seas can be expected in the sea areas in between 05N-12N, 77E-90E during next few days.

Naval and fishing communities are advised not to venture into the deep and shallow-sea areas over the island until further notice.

The fishing and naval community are requested to be attentive about future bulletins issued by the
Department of Meteorology in the next few days.


Condition of Rain:
Intermittent showers or thundershowers will occur in the deep and shallow sea areas extending from Puttalam to Pottuvil via Mannar, Kankasanthurai, Trincomalee and Batticaloa.

Very heavy showers can be expected some places in the above sea areas. Showers will occur at times elsewhere.

Winds will be north-easterly to north-westerly in the sea areas extending from Galle to Batticaloa via Manna and Trincomalee, wind speed will be (50-60) kmph and wind speed can increase up to (80-95) kmph at times over these sea areas.

Winds will be south-easterly to south-westerly in the other sea areas around the island and the wind speed will be (40-50) kmph and can increase up to (60-70) kmph at times.

State of Sea:
The sea areas extending from Mannar to Pottuvil via Kankasanthurai and Trincomalee can be very rough or high at times.

The other sea areas can be rough or very rough at times. There is a possibility that nearshore sea areas off the coast extending from Trincomalee to Kankasanthurai and in Pooneryn to Puttalam may experience surges due to the effect of swell waves, having (2.0-3.0) m height.
