An hour ago Katunayake Airport reported:

30°C 74% humidity 1004 hPa Partly Clouded Wind WSW at 18 km/h / 5.1 m/s

Waikkal is about 20 km from the airport so where there should be similar, though showers can be very local in Sri Lanka.

Take a look here:

holiday-weather.com/country/…index.html

Ignore the 7 day forecast - doesn't seem to change :0/ I look at it daily in the morning and that gives a good indication of weather.

Hans - How accurate do you think that 'Latest Observations' will be? I've checked on the 3 Hourly Forecast for Negombo and it's given thunderstorms for every picture!!

Current conditions matches Underground's observations at Katunayake Airport.

OK, the icon says T-storms, but you also have to look at "Precip chance".
