Weather Updates for Sri Lankan - Cyclone is coming in your way

Based on the updated forecast from the Department of Meteorology, the depression over the Bay of Bengal is likely to develop into a deep depression by evening today (1st December 2020).

It is likely to cross over the east coast of Sri Lanka between Batticaloa and Mullaitivu as a cyclonic storm. As forecasted by the regional cyclone prediction center (refer figure below), the color red indicates the approximate path of the storm (the median of several model outputs), and the color green indicates the uncertain areas (Cone of uncertainty).

The impact of the storm is uncertain at this point and the strength of the system is yet to be determined, however the current forecast predicts that, it will conform to the nature of a storm in the event it crosses over the country, across the Trincomalee area towards Mannar.

Important Updates

  • The following districts are on high alert according to the predicted path of the storm; Batticaloa, Trincomalee, Mullaitivu, Anuradhapura, Polonnaruwa, Vavuniya, Mannar, Puttalam. Adjoining areas are at medium risk.
  • As per the Disaster Management Center,  District officials have been requested to take preparatory measures and a press briefing will be held today to provide an overview of the potential impact and preparatory actions.
  • Please find attached the GoSL circular on the NE monsoon preparedness and response along with the Health Guidelines on Relief Management at Safety Centers.
  • I would like to urge you to stay vigilant and updated on the latest developments (also accessible via official updates from the Department of Meteorology, TV/Radio, and local DMC public broadcasts) keep your management and staff (especially the field staff) based in high-risk areas informed on the situation.

Reiterating the list of needs requested by the Disaster Management Center (DMC) at the Stakeholder meeting on the NE Monsoon Preparedness (convened on 18th Nov 2020). UNICEF at the request of the DMC has confirmed that they will provide 1000 Tarpaulin sheets and 10 tents.
