    Severe weather advisory: Strong winds, heavy showers and rough seas

    October 18, 2014

    The Met Dept. has issued a severe weather advisory for strong winds, heavy showers and rough seas valid for next 12 hours from 18.30 hrs on October 17.


    The dept. says that due to the active cloudiness to the west and to the South of Sri Lanka, sudden increase of wind speed over the sea areas off the coast extending from Jaffna to Hambanthota via Colombo and Galle is possible. Therefore the possibility of sudden roughness of the above said sea areas are high.


    Thundershowers will develop over most parts of the island and around the sea areas. Heavy falls (more than 100mm) are also likely at some places, the Met Dept. further states.(KH)
