Inclement weather conditions are continuing. The Met Department has said that it has been caused by an atmospheric depression, created close to Sri Lanka.
Thunder showers are expected in the Eastern, Central, Uva, Northern and North Central Provinces. A cool temperature is prevailing in all areas due to lack of sunshine owing to the overcast sky. Earlier it was expected that the extreme weather would ease by this evening. So far there has been no indication of easing of the condition.
