The Early Warning Centre of the Department of Meteorology has issued a severe weather advisory for heavy showers, strong winds and rough seas in the next 18 hours while urging saval and fishing communities to remain vigilant.
It says that due to the active cloudiness in the Western, Southern and South-eastern sea areas, intermittent showers or thunder showers can be expected in the deep and shallow sea areas off the coast extending from Negombo to Potuvil via Colombo, Galle and Hambantota.
Temporally strong gusty winds (up to 70-80kmph) and very rough seas can be expected during thundershowers. Naval and fishing communities are requested to be vigilant in this regards, it said.
