Sea areas:
Showers or thundershowers may occur at a few places in the sea areas extending from Colombo to Hambantota via Galle in the afternoon or night, the Meteorology Department stated.

Winds will be North-easterly and speed will be (30-40) kmph in the sea areas around the island. Wind speed can increase up to (50-55) kmph at times in the deep and shallow sea areas extending from Mannar to Kalutara via Puttalam and Colombo and in Matara to Pottuvil via Hambantota.

The deep and shallow seas off the coast extending from Mannar to Kalutara via Puttalam and Colombo and in Matara to Pottuvil via Hambantota can be fairly rough at times.
