Negombo had received the highest rainfall of 137mm during the past 24 hours ending at 8.30 this morning while a rainfall of 136mm was reported from Katunayake, the Meteorology Department said today.

The duty meteorologist said the drought prevailing in Anuradhapura, Trincomalee, Puttalam, Polonnaruwa, Badulla and Hambantota districts had received a rainfall of 0.3mm, 3.8mm, 6.4mm, 0.6mm, 7mm and 16.4mm respectively.

He said the Galle district had received a rainfall of 81mm and the Colombo district a rainfall of 16mm.

The Meteorology Department said the rainy weather would continue over the South-Western parts of the country and showers or thundershowers could be expected in the Central, Sabaragamuwa, Western, North-Western and Southern provinces due to the atmospheric disturbance in the vicinity of Sri Lanka.

It said thundershowers could develop at several places elsewhere during the afternoon or night while heavy rainfall exceeding 100mm was likely at some places.

Meanwhile, Disaster Management Centre (DMC) issued a landslide warning valid for next 24 hours in Kalutara, Gall, Matara and Kegalle districts. (Ajith Siriwardana)
