Crisp nights, clear days ahead

Meteorological predictions call for the anticyclone currently settled over the region to linger for at least a week, possibly longer, bringing sunny and warm days on the one hand, but crisp and frosty nights in places on the other.

Overnight from Sunday to Monday low temperatures in northeast inland Vidzeme province dipped down to near zero degrees Celsius, bringing frost to ground level vegetation and causing a light fog to rise.

In eastern Latvia, overnight lows dropped to between a very chilly +1.5 degrees in Daugavpils and +2.1 degrees in Gulbene.

Lows nearer the coasts of Kurzeme and Vidzeme provinces did not reach lower than between +8 and +9 degrees.

However, clear skies will allow the sun to warm things up already by mid-morning, with slow winds prevailing from the southeast steadily until Saturday, after which they are predicted to shift down from the north. Daytime highs are expected to stay in the high teens, possibly inching above the +20 degree mark in western Kurzeme and south-central Zemgale provinces.

According to the LVĢMC, extended forecasts predict mostly dry weather until about September 25. After that the chance of precipitation is expected to rise, however slightly for the end of the month.
