    Met Dept. don't split a word from you mouth about raining, if you say will drain definitely a very very high drought. Please say we will experience a no rain for another 3 months so only we get adequate rainfall to the county.

    Oh really. Met department's roof must be leaking! What a timely prediction.

    No rain no Friday, 24 August 2012 11:51 AM

    Which means there will be no RAIN!!! Whenever the SL met department says something, its the opposite that happens....

    Met dept. issues only a forecast and it changes when the condition of whether changes. Here in Brisbane the forecast changes hourly and some times it goes wrong. (eg. Yesterday they foretasted heavy rains here but no rain here on today). So, it's only a forecast and no one can say it accurately.

    But how in other countries (most western countries) predicting correctly the weather .

    Gds plans are always higher than mans prediction
    when God acts no one can reverse it

    Farzan - Kalutara Friday, 24 August 2012 06:43 AM

    Yes. Its a forecast but all the time there forecasts go wrong.

    Sammy Friday, 24 August 2012 06:17 AM

    Welcome rain, despite the inconvenience.

    Tharaka Chanaka Friday, 24 August 2012 06:00 AM

    Weather.com is more accurate than our Met department. These showers could have been predicted and hence power cuts could have been avoided.

    perera Friday, 24 August 2012 05:54 AM

    the met dept only forecast a forecast may come about or not as thr case may be. they are not rainmakers or prophets.

    are people this stupid not to understand this

    Rak Friday, 24 August 2012 05:49 AM

    Why!
    Rain might put out fires and solve heating problems

    Nihal Amarasekera Friday, 24 August 2012 04:03 AM

    Hope Norochcholai area will be spared

    ind Friday, 24 August 2012 04:57 AM

    Timely forecasted !!!

    senavi Friday, 24 August 2012 05:12 AM

    but not with rain in western province

    ZScore Friday, 24 August 2012 04:57 AM

    The met department is a joke.. a couple of weeks back they said no rain could be expected until September. In June they said heavy showers were expected for two weeks and not a drop of rain.

    Sri Radharakshitha Friday, 24 August 2012 04:43 AM

    Hope it brings relief to poor farmers

    geriatrix Friday, 24 August 2012 04:18 AM

    ok.. thats the end of the rain!!! Met. Dept has opened its mouth.. from tomorrow onwards it will be sunshine!!

    M.V.R.Perera Friday, 24 August 2012 04:27 AM

    This is the period up to end of November the catchment areas of the main reservoirs for power generation gets most rain and the System Control Center ensures that the reservoirs are almost full without spilling and as such most hydro units are generated towards the end of November

    Wild Friday, 24 August 2012 04:15 AM

    MET dept we know thats its raining today !! MET dept should predict weather forecast days ahead !! Not on the day when its raining !!

    suresh Friday, 24 August 2012 04:33 AM

    Sri Lankan Friday, 24 August 2012 04:12 AM

    MP Friday, 24 August 2012 04:06 AM
