Due to the active cloud activity this evening and towards the night in the seas to the east of the country, heavy showers could be experienced in the shallow and deep sea areas from Kankasanthirai to Trincomalee. The winds are expected to speed up instantly and could reach between 70 to 80 km/h and the sea could be rough in these areas.
