The Met department today said that under the influence of the depression condition, that is centered about 250 km east of Mullattivu coast, most parts of the island will experience rainy conditions throughout the day.
“Strong winds and very heavy rain falls (more than 150 mm) will also occur in the Eastern, Northern, North- central and North -western provinces. Scattered heavy rain falls (more than 100 mm) are also expected elsewhere,” it said.
The department also said that the depression is likely to move in westward direction and deepen in to a deep depression.
“Fishing and naval communities are requested to be vigilant about the strong winds, showery weather and rough seas in the sea areas off the coast from Mannar to Batticaloa via Jaffna and Trincomalee,” it added.
