The sun will be over Sri Lanka till April 15 this year according to the department.

However, the department also said that Sri Lanka was not affected by the heat wave hat was sweeping across the Indian subcontinent. On March 30 Indian media reported that at least five people had died in its Maharashtra State as a result of the heat wave, where the temperature exceeded 40 degrees Celsius.

Temperatures in Jaffna, Ratnapura and Vavuniya were at 35 degrees, while it is 33 C in Colombo at present. The Meteorology Department predicted fair weather in the coming days.

However the Department forecast that thunder showers could be expected at a few places in the Western and the Sabaragamuwa Provinces and in the Galle and Matara Districts particularly after 2.00 p.m.
