An accurate weather forecasting system to be established in Sri Lanka with the support of University of Notre Dame, USA

Recent climate changes in Sri Lanka especially the changes in monsoon weather patterns have made adverse impacts to the smooth functioning of the country.

In this regard Hon Minister Mahinda Amaraweera entered in to an agreement with the University of Notre Dame, USA in March 2017 and requested for support in disaster management in climate changes.

Accordingly, the University has consented to conduct a Monsoon Intra-Seasonal Oscillation project in Sri Lanka under which a weather forecasting system will be established to predict the rainfall, temperature variations, humidity, wind flow, direction and the speed of the hot and cold sea waves and other factors that cause climate changes

A discussion in this regard was held on 26th July at the Ministry of Fisheries and Aquatic Resources Development.  Professor Harindra J.S Fernando from Notre Dame University is in-charge of this project while NARA handles the co-ordination.

A special air-craft will be used in this project and the studies will be conducted by the scientific equipments installed in it. Temperature up to 10 Km and wind speed up to 02 Km from mean sea level will be studied along with the studies on sea waves.

The most significant benefit of this system is the ability to predict rainfall amount and the exact area of raining in a sudden downpour which will be helpful in managing the adverse effects.

Hon Minister mentioned that unavailability of such a system led to huge destruction during the recent extreme weather conditions in the country. Thus he emphasized that the Sri Lankan government will be supporting this project at its best capacity. The project is planned to be initiated in 2018 and will be completed in two years.
