Gridded dataset of rainfall intensities (mm/h) covering Sri Lanka over the period 12 September 2019 through 31 December 2019. Commercial microwave link (CML) data were used to estimate path-average rainfall between telephone towers. These were interpolated to 15-min rainfall maps on a 0.02 degree grid (approximately 4 km).
