Heavy falls of around 100 mm may occur elsewhere over the island.
Light showers may also occur in the Western and Southern coastal areas in the morning.
Misty conditions may occur at some places in the Central, Sabaragamuwa and Western provinces during the morning.
There may be temporary localized strong winds during thundershowers.
