While serious storm and blizzard conditions experienced on Wednesday have reduced somewhat, Thursday in Latvia is set to be another windy, and in many places snowy, day according to forecasters.

On Thursday morning the skies in western Kurzeme region were clearing after a day of battering winds while in the east of the country there is still snowfall.

Temperatures are between -3 C and - 5 C, though a couple of degrees warmer in coastal areas, according to the information of the Latvian Environment, Geology and Meteorology Center.

A strong northern wind is still gusting in most parts of the country, making it feel colder, with windspeeds of 11-17 meters per second (m/s) inland and up to 20 m/s offshore.

As the day progresses it will become sunnier in western and central districts but Vidzeme and Latgale are likely to remain cloudy with further snowfall. Friday is likely to follow a similar pattern and motorists are advised to drive with caution on slippery roads.
