Inter-monsoon period setting in

Showers accompanied by lightning and strong winds may prevail during the afternoons and evenings with the onset of the inter-monsoon period in a few days time, the Meteorology Department said.

Deputy Director (Forecast) S.R.Jayasekera said that the main feature of the coming week’s weather would be lightning which the public should take into account when involved in outdoor activities during the evening.

“Changes in the weather pattern will take place in a few days and many areas especially in the Uva, Eastern and Central Provinces will experience showers which will later move to the other provinces,” he said.

He said that during the daytime, warm weather would continue with cloudless skies and calm winds. “High humidity will be experienced islandwide in the mornings,” he said.

The inter-monsoon conditions generally begin in October and end in November.
