Seen here are residents going about their daily business during the intermittent rains in Colombo and its suburbs. The Meteorology Department yesterday predicted that showers or thunder showers were expected across most parts of the island for the next few days.   

Cloudy skies are expected over the island with a fairly heavy rainfall of 75 mm expected in some parts of the country. Intermittent showers or thunder showers will occur in the deep and shallow sea areas off the coast extending from Negombo to Potuvil via Colombo. The Department also predicted there was a 90 percent probability of showers or thunder showers ranging from 50 to 100 mm in Colombo.
