The low pressure area over the South-West Bay of Bengal and the adjoining South-East Bay of Bengal is likely to intensify further in to a depression during next 36 hours and move west-northwestward off the east coast of Sri Lanka during the next few days (03rd, 04th and 05th March).
There can be very heavy showers or thundershowers, strong winds (40-50) kmph gusting up to 65kmph associated with rough seas over the aforementioned sea area.
The fishing and naval communities are advised not to venture into the sea areas off the coast extending from Kankasanturai to Hambanthota via Trincomalee from tonight until further notice.
Those who are out at sea over these regions are advised to return to coasts or moved safer areas.
