    WEATHER FORECAST FOR NEXT 36 HOURS

    The Extremely Severe Cyclonic Storm ‘FANI’ (pronounced as FONI) over West-central Bay of Bengal to the Northeast of Sri Lanka, was located near latitude 20.2N, Longitude 85.9E at 11.30 a.m. of 03rd May 2019, about 1330 km northeast of Jaffna (over Indian land). It is likely to move north-northeastwards while moving away from the island, hence the affect from this system to the island will gradually reduce. Strong winds up to 50 kmph can be expected over the island, particularly in Northern, North central, North-western and Southern provinces and in Ampara, Monaragala and Trincomalee districts. Showers or thundershowers will occur at times over Sabaragamuwa, Central, Southern and Western provinces. Heavy falls above 100 mm can be expected at some places in the above areas. Showers or thundershowers may occur at several places in North-western, Eastern, Uva and North-central provinces and in Mannar district. General public, Naval and fishing communities are requested to be attentive about future advisories issued by the Department of Meteorology in this regards.
