The Department of Meteorology has issued an advisory on the thundershowers and lightning activity in many components of the nation throughout the late hours of the day.
Accordingly, thundershowers accompanied by extreme lightning are most likely to happen at many locations in Sabaragamuwa province and in Kalutara, Galle and Matara districts in the afternoon or at evening.
Fairly heavy showers above 50mm are most likely in some locations.
There may well be short-term localized robust winds throughout thundershowers.
The common public is advised to take sufficient precautions to reduce damages brought on by lightning activity.
