Met. Dept. issues severe weather advisory

The Meteorology Department warned that heavy rains exceeding 100 mm were expected in some places, especially in the Southern and Eastern parts of the country as the disturbance that persisted to the South-east of Sri Lanka was likely to develop into a depression and move closer to the country.

Issuing a severe weather advisory valid for the next 12 hours starting from 11.30 am on Saturday, the department said the possibility of sudden roughness of the sea associated with an abrupt increase of wind speed up to 70-80 kmph could be expected over the surrounding sea areas.

It said cloudy skies and thundershowers were expected over most parts of the country.
