Today must be you coldest day ever that you(and probably your parents) have spent. Because today morning we had very low temperature, specially in Colombo.

The temperature in Colombo has dropped to 18.8⁰C, the lowest recorded temperature in 61 years, the Meteorological Department reported today. Nuwara-Eliya recorded a temperature of 7.9⁰C while Batticaloa recorded 16.9⁰C. The cold climate will continue throughout today and tomorrow, the Met Department reported. Back in 1950 Colombo recorded a temperature of 15.2⁰C in the month of January.
