The Natural Hazards Early Warning Centre of the Met Department says that heavy rain and strong winds could be experienced in the sea areas off the coast extending from Hambantota to Mannar via Galle and Colombo.

It added that under the influence of the low-pressure area to the southwest of Sri Lanka, there is a possibility for heavy showers or thundershowers and sudden roughness, associated with a sudden increase of wind speed up to 70-80 kmph.

The Naval and fishing communities are also requested to be vigilant in this regards.
