More storms expected across Latvia Thursday night

Wednesday night brought large thunderstorms to much of Latvia and, though probably not as violent, Thursday will bring more of the same, according to the latest forecasts.

A yellow alert (potential danger) is in place across the whole country with the exception of eastern and south-eastern districts where a more serious orange alert (danger) is in effect, according to the Latvian Environment, Geology and Meteorology Center (LVĢMC).

In a first warning, the LVĢMC said strong wind gusts of up to 15 meters per second can be expected in places, as well as 10-19 mm of rain, with hail also possible.

However, soon afterwards an update suggested even heavier rain might be expected.
