The Met Office said the Southwest monsoon has become strong over the Maldives.

It said that this meant that in the next 3 days, fairly widespread rain and thunderstorms will be experienced over the country. The Met Office said that strong winds, rough seas, and the possibility of wave surges were expected.

It said that the wave surges are expected mostly in central and northern Atolls during the next three days.
