The Department of Meteorology predicts showers at times in the Western, Sabaragamuwa and North-western provinces and in the Kandy, Nuwara-Eliya, Galle and Matara districts today.
The Met Department said showers or thundershowers can also be expected at several places in the Uva, Eastern and Northern provinces during the evening or night.
Meanwhile, the general public has been requested to take adequate precautions to minimize damages caused by temporary localized strong winds and lightning during thundershowers.
The Met Department added due to the southward relative motion, the sun will be directly over the latitudes of Sri Lanka from today to the 7th of September.
Accordingly, the sun will be directly above Jaffna and Kodikamam at around 12.11pm today.
