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. 

Sunny weekend to follow slushy workweek

The work week will see changeable weather with snow giving way to rain and vice versa, but the weekend is set to be dry and sunny, reported LSM's weatherman Toms Bricis.

Temperatures to rise next week

This weekend will be cloudy and warmer than recent days, while next week could give us an early taste of spring weather, according to LSM's weatherman Toms Bricis.

Global disaster could be great news for Latvia

While global warming has the potential to cause unprecedented suffering, famine, species extinction, water wars and assorted other headaches across large swathes of the world, it also offers economic opportunities for Latvia, according to LSM's resident weatherman, Toms Bricis. 

Cold week ahead

Weather forecasters have done a quick U-turn and switched their previous prediction of a warm start to February with quite the opposite.

Weekend will be slippery when wet

An unexceptional weekend is in store weather-wise, with a general thaw continuing and occasional patches of ice amid the slush making driving dangerous. 

Ski while you can - winter may soon be over

Winter sports fans should make the most of the next few days with forecasters warning that temperatures will soon rise, snow will melt - and spring could even begin by the end of the month.
