However, a few showers were expected tomorrow in the Sabaragamuwa and Southern provinces and in some areas in the Western Province

Fairly strong winds at times are expected over the island, particularly over western slopes of the central hills. (YP)

    67.2C was obviously a mistake which has been corrected subsequently. This is not a temperature that is experienced even in the dessert. Shows the lack of intelligence and common sense of the people who had commented. via DM iOS App

    The highest temperature of 67.2C degrees was recorded from Moneragala. This place will become uninhabitable soon.

    People have to send that idiot to Monaragala who destroyed Villpaththu. Soon people will understand what they have done to the environment.
