Coldest May since 1999 recorded

To those who tried spending time outdoors, it might not come as a surprise that this past May was the coldest since 1999, with the average temperature of just +9.5C, according to the Latvian Environment, Geology and Meteorology Centre.

Many local cold records fell through the month, with the lowest temperature recorded in Stende at -2.6C and highest in Jelgava and Skrīveri at +22C.

Precipitation was normal but uneven, meaning most of the country saw a rather dry month of May. In other news, Vidzeme TV reported May 28 that local farmers are preparing for a record cereal harvest this year.
