Wednesday will be record-hot in Latvia

Wednesday may become the hottest August 16 since weather observations in Latvia have been carried out.

The day will be mostly sunny, but there is little chance of a local cloud of rainfall and thunderstorms, and each storm is potentially dangerous, bringing strong gusts of wind, intense rainfall, and hail.

The wind will be slow and the air temperatures will be +30 C to +33 C, cooler in Kurzeme and on the coast.

Until now, the hottest August 16 in Latvia has been experienced in 1939, when a 33.2-degree high air temperature was recorded in Rūjiena. This time, local records will be reached in many areas, but it is very likely that this national record of August 16 will also be overcome.
