    When it starts raining in Vavuniya, Met Department will tell you that - "It is raining in Vavyniya too". Until such time keep your fingers crossed!

    It is like all other department moving backwards can not do even the basic duty of the department

    Good question and sadly the answer is due to funding. They dont have the high resolution satellite imagery and computer models to make these predictions.

    In this day and age, weather forecasting can be pretty good, e.g., the track of the recent hurricane in the U.S., not to mention the typhoons in the Pacific. Why is it the Met Department in this country cannot alert people to the change of winds et al a little before the deluge hits?

    hope it rains like this in the catchment areas

    That is a great statement. No one can challenge that. We all know winds patterns change all the time. Ask a primary school kid!

    Welcome Rain, very much needed...........

    Fusion Friday, 07 September 2012 06:01 AM

    So I guess more rain in the catchment areas?

    the whole point of the Metrology department is to inform the public BEFORE it rains.... it looks like someone in the department forecasts the weather by looking out of the window
