WEATHER FORECAST FOR MULTIDAY BOATS

For the sea areas in between 20N - 10S and 60E-100E

(Issued at 07.00 a.m. on 03 August 2020, for next three days)

Sea areas around the island

 

 

Showers or thundershowers will occur at several places in the sea areas around the island. Fairly heavy showers can be expected in the Southern and South-eastern sea areas.

Winds will be South-westerly in the sea areas around the island. Wind speed will be (40-50) kmph. Wind speed can increase up to (60-65) kmph at times in the sea areas extending from Trincomalee to Potuvil via Kankasanturai, Mannar, Colombo, Galle and Hambantota. The sea areas extending from Trincomalee to Potuvil via Kankasanturai, Mannar, Colombo, Galle and Hambantota can be rough at times. The other sea areas around the island can be fairly rough at times.

There is a possibility that near Shore Sea areas off the coast extending from Beruwala to Hambantota via Galle, may experience surges due to the effect of swell waves, having 2.0 – 3.0m height (this is not the height of nearshore waves).

Naval and fishing communities and those who are living in coastal areas are requested to be vigilant in this regard.
