    Can anyone tell that you are having depression, not even yourself, until it shows up. So same with the Met Dept.

    It's OK. As long as there is no depression in our country's economy.

    Naraka Kolla Sunday, 21 November 2010 09:02 AM

    Point is, our big Meteorology department can NEVER give an indication in advance. Once it hits, they are able to give fabulous explanations. God bless all the air planes coming to SL based on these guys forecasts!!

    Entire nation is under dipression. why worried about weather.

    next year, the La Nino cycle will be in effect and a long patch of drought is expected. Will see the efficiency of the newly installed thermal generators.

    Which nation? Qatar?

    CJ Sunday, 21 November 2010 10:10 AM

    True, Government should close it down. More reliable forecasts can be obtained from Internet without cost.

    N Hesara Sunday, 21 November 2010 10:15 AM

    @Naraka, he he... it's true indeed. The funniest thing is even in so called high tech cities like London , the weather prdictions will never get correct.Despite getting data from no of satellites and usage of sophisticated NWP(Numerical weather prediction) tools. I think SL met department is doing a fabuloius job with limited resources..

    Gulf Kolla Sunday, 21 November 2010 10:36 AM

    So are we under the El Nino cycle now?

    Everytime it rains i am suffering because my nextdoor drains the rainwater to my side making a minor flood. I guess he enjoys my suffering.

    TERRENCE B. DE SILVA Sunday, 21 November 2010 11:21 AM

    MY GEOGRAPHY TEACHER TAUGHT US THAT THE SOUTH WESTERN REGION OF SRI LANKA WAS KNOWN AS THE "WET ZONE" DUE TO THE SOUTH WEST MONSOON RAINS AND THE AFTERNOON THUNDER SHOWERS EXPERIENCED IN THE REGION BEING ON THE WINDWARD SIDE OF THE CENTRAL MOUNTAIN RANGE - QUITE APART FROM THE PREDICTIONS OF THE DEPT. OF METROLOGY & ITS FORECAST OF CLIMATIC DEPRESSIONS.

    siri Sunday, 21 November 2010 11:30 AM

    Naraka - quite true. Waeather forecasts can now be given mainly because of sat photos reasonable accurately for upto 2/3 days in advance. It understandably diminishes beyond that. For eg. UK weather forecasts have about 85% probability/accuracy.

    Cobra Sunday, 21 November 2010 11:52 AM

    You mean: No further depression?

    Cobra Sunday, 21 November 2010 11:55 AM

    I think even the Gods are fed up all the tamashas that are taking place here, wasting public money!

    Oyage Podi Guru Sunday, 21 November 2010 12:11 PM

    Which do you mean? ¿el niño or la niña ?

    jambu Sunday, 21 November 2010 12:51 PM

    Oh dear, where r those lakes?? Now i'm feeling depressed.

    Sue Sunday, 21 November 2010 01:13 PM

    Bad Weather due to minor depression and cost of living is creating major depression in all of us today. Will these depressions ever go away and bring us some relief?
