The pre­vail­ing show­ery con­di­tions in the coun­try are ex­pected to worsen in the com­ing days, the Dis­as­ter Man­age­ment Cen­tre (DMC) warned yes­ter­day.

Ac­cord­ingly heavy show­ers ex­ceed­ing 50mm are ex­pected in the Sabaraga­muwa, Cen­tral, Western and North-western prov­inces and in the Galle and Matara dis­tricts.

Show­ers will oc­cur in the Western, South­ern and North-western prov­inces and in the Bat­ticaloa and Am­para dis­tricts es­pe­cially dur­ing the af­ter­noon. Fairly strong winds are ex­pected in a few places while gusty winds of upto 40 to 50 kmph would be ex­pe­ri­enced in the North­cen­tral prov­ince and the Put­ta­lam, Matale, Monara­gala and Ham­ban­tota Dis­tricts.

Light show­ers were pre­dicted in the sea ar­eas ex­tend­ing from Put­ta­lam to Matara via Colombo and Galle. Winds will be south­west­erly in di­rec­tion and wind speeds on av­er­age would be around 35-45 kmph but could pick up and reach upto 60 kmph at times in the sea ar­eas ex­tend­ing from Put­ta­lam to Kanke­san­tu­rai via Man­nar and Matara to Pot­tuvil via Ham­ban­tota. The sea ar­eas ex­tend­ing from Put­ta­lam to Man­nar and Ham­ban­tota to Pot­tuvil was ex­pected to be rough. Naval and fish­ing com­mu­ni­ties were re­quested to be vig­i­lant due to sea ar­eas be­ing rough with gusty winds mak­ing it dan­ger­ous for fish­ing.
