“It will bring gusty winds, which will travel at 50 kmph in the Northern and North Central Provinces, while it will bring winds which will travel at 40 kmph in North-western and Central Provinces, and winds which will travel at 30 kmph in other provinces. However, the impact of this system, on the weather over the island is expected to reduce gradually,” DMC said.
