Dog days peaking this week

This week sees the peak of the sultry dog days of summer 2017, with temperatures of up to +30C expected over the week.

Warm week ahead

This week will be warm across Latvia with temperatures close to +25C expected with nights being rather warm too, forecasts say.

Changeable weather this week

This week brings changeable weather but air temperatures are expected to pick up on some days compared to last week, reports LSM's Latvian-language service. 

Bad weather saves lives

The less than spectacular weather Latvia has experienced so far this summer has had one positive effect: fewer people have drowned than usual.

Weekend weather will be not too bad

The weekend of July 8 and 9 will see generally pleasant weather, though there will still be rain showers in all districts, according to forecasters.

Freak weather rips through Sigulda

Sigulda in central Latvia is renowned for its beautiful landscapes, but nature's attractions turned nasty June 20 with hurricane-force winds, torrential rain and hailstones leaving a trail of destruction in their path. 

Stormy start to the week, frost may follow

After a weekend of glorious sunshine across the whole of Latvia, the working week gets under way in less spectacular fashion with the promise of cooler temperatures at the start of June, according to LSM weather-watcher Toms Bricis.

Real summer, and real thunder, on the way

Finally, after what seems like years of telling you each Monday mornign that the week's weather in Latvia will be cold with snow, we can change the record: a possible heatwave is approaching! 

Another day, another cold record

On the morning of May 11, the national cold record fell in Latvia, according to the Latvian Environment, Geology and Meteorology Centre. 

Records tumble as Latvia tops 20 Celsius

The afternoon of April 2 saw temperatures in Latvia top 20 degrees Celsius (68 Fahrenheit) for the first time this year in the south-eastern city of Daugavpils - and significantly earlier than is usual, according to the Latvian Environment, Geology and Meteorology Center (LVĢMC).

Warm but wet week ahead

This week the weather in Latvia will become warmer but winds will gain in force and it'll often be raining, say forecasts.

Spring postponed until weekend

The weather will be snowy in Latvia early this week but warmer temperatures characteristic of spring are to return in the latter half of the week, say forecasts.

Warming week ahead

Winter has proven to be more tenacious than expected with fresh snow flurries in recent days giving a few hours of bonus recreation to skiers and snowball fighters, but according to our resident weatherman Toms Bricis it's all likely to melt in the near future.
