The prevailing windy and showery conditions will continue across the country and in the adjoining sea areas in the next few days due to the active south-west monsoon, according to the Meteorology Department.
A Duty Meteorologist of the department predicted that heavy rains, above 100 mm, could be expected at some places in the Sabaragamuwa, Western and Central provinces and in the Galle and Matara districts over the weekend.
In addition, strong gusty winds up to 60 kmph were predicted for Western, Southern, Central, Northern, North-central and North-western provinces and Monaragala district.
The Met Dept said that showers or thundershowers would occur at times in Western, Sabaragamuwa, Southern, Central and North-Western provinces.
The water level of the Kalu Ganga rising had put the Millakanda areas in danger following heavy showers experienced in the catchment areas, the Disaster Management Centre (DMC) said.
