The Meteorology Department today extended the heat weather advisory to ' Extreme Caution' level to be expected in most parts of the North-Western and Western Provinces in addition to Mannar, Galle and Matara Districts.

The Department issued a new heat weather advisory in ' Extreme Caution' level to the Ratnapura district too.
