Met Dept predicts heavy rains, rules out cyclone

COLOMBO: Heavy rains are expected during the next 24 hours, specially in the North, East and North Central Provinces, due to an atmospheric disturbance, in the Bay of Bengal.

However contrary to some earlier reports, Met Department Chief G.H.P. Dharmarathne ruled out the possibility of an impending cyclone affecting Sri Lanka. But strong winds are expected along with thunder showers in most parts of the country during the evening and night. Dharmarathne said

Meteorology Department officials were keeping a close eye with regard to any new developments and any such threat of a cyclone would be announced to the public immediately.

"The low level disturbance is expected to enhance monsoonal conditions which would result in heavy rains, especially in the North and East. Fairly heavy rain falls are also likely in some places," he said.

According to Dharmarathne, October to December is the most active period in the Bay of Bengal which would result in more frequent disturbed weather conditions affecting Sri Lanka.

Due to this heightened activity in the Bay of Bengal during the period, the frequency of such conditions affecting Sri Lanka would be enhanced with more showers and heavy winds being predicted during the coming months.
