Weather along the West Coast

Hi,

Just wondering if anyone could tell me what the weather has been like for the past few days along the coast from Mirissa to Colombo/Negombo?

We've been in Mirissa since Thursday and each day has been the same; sunny in the morning but cloudy by early afternoon.

We're moving on from Mirissa tomorrow and are hoping the weather will be better along the way so if anyone has any information it'd be greatly appreciated!

Thanks

There was a downpour in Colombo last night. But it has been dry the last few days

Usually, the rain occurs in spells. Short periods and in stretches...
