After a long dry season we can expect some rain over the island. Some rainy clouds appear on these satellite images and some are heading towards the country.

Receiving winds from NE might bring these rainy clouds over eastern and mostly to central province which might help paddy farmers to keep their fields alive for few more weeks.

If the second sets of clouds are strong enough to last for few more weeks depending on the thickness and the wind speed this might ease the dry situation.

Update 1: NOAA 19 images were added later in the evening. Some more clouds are on our way.
