Thunderstorms now?

We go on Monday and the weather report tells me it is thunderstorms each day. PLEASE tell me they're wrong!

The past few days the rain is unpredictable but mostly in the evening and night. Mostly it was gloomy. Hopefully this will be over by monday.

The on-line weather reports always highlight the thunderstorms and wet weather, but the reality is usually far better and it's rare not to get good periods of sunshine inbetween aswell. Thunderstorms are frequent in Sri Lanka, usually towards late afternoon and overnight but clear up quickly. I obviously cannot predict the weather you are going to get, and it is still an unsettled time of year out there in the south west, but I'd put a bet on you getting a good share of sunshine aswell ... and whatever happens, you will NEVER be cold!!

In Aluthgama (15 km south of Kalutara) the weather yesterday was rain on and off from 08:30-12:30 then a couple of hours with some sunshine before it started raining again. The time of the year the rains are often accompanied by thunder, lightning and heavy winds.

Have just spent 10 days on the south coast 7 of which rained virtually non stop - this time a year ago there was just he odd shower - so guess it's got to clear for the rest of the month!!
