Overcast skies with some showers can be expected in other areas in the island today and tomorrow, the Dept. of Meteorology told Daily Mirror online.

So now we have a new rain maker. Release Fonseka to stop rain. Jail him if we need rain. Ha Ha ha. Foneseka can be useful after all.

I think this marks a historical day for the Sri Lanka Met Dept. First time they have issued a Bad Weather Advisory.
