Drenching week ahead

Windy, cool and rainy weather settled in over Latvia in an abrupt interruption of summer’s end Monday, reported the state Environment, Geology and Meteorology Centre (LVĢMC).

A cyclone arriving late Sunday brought a broad zone of heavy precipitation expected to last through most of the week, with rainfall levels expected up to 30-40 milliliters in Latvia’s central regions, less in western coastal Kurzeme.

Air temperatures during the day in western Latvia will rise to highs of +16 to +19 degrees Celsius where partly sunny, however eastern and central Latvia will stay under cloud cover, with daytime highs staying between +12 and +15 degrees.

Overnight temperatures will drop to lows of +7 to +14, however coastal areas should not fall below +13 to +15 degrees.

Winds will be westerly, with gusts off the sea coast reaching speeds of 18 meters per second.

Heavy rain and westerly winds will continue to dominate all week, with partly sunny weather returning only by the weekend, when temperatures may again rise to above +20 degrees.

Indeed, already Friday weather reports noted the start of meteorological autumn, when the average air temperature dips below +15 degrees Celsius for at least 5 days in a row, which was the case in the inland south-central Kurzeme district of Saldus last week.
