Fair fall weather forecast

Take note – story published 9 years and 7 months ago

Meteorologists expect the week ahead to bring very pleasant, if seasonably cool, weather to our region.

While skies Monday will be mostly overcast, daytime temperatures are predicted to rise to between a balmy +14 and +18 degrees Celsius, with only a slight chance of scattered precipitation in central north Vidzeme province.

Winds from the west, southwest will be moderate, sometimes pushing the cloud cover apart to allow for partly sunny moments despite the slight chance of rain. Weather watchers warn that Monday will be the warmest day this week, though.

An anti-cyclone settling over the area should herald mostly sunny weather amongst very little cloud cover for the rest of the week into the first days of October. Early morning fog is a widespread possibility wherever wind speeds remain low.

However, winds from the north will turn gusty Tuesday, sweeping in colder air masses and keeping daytime highs between +12 and +15 degrees despite the warming sun.

Overnight lows to Wednesday will drop to between +2 and +7 degrees, with frosts likely in inland Vidzeme and Latgale provinces.

The western edge of the high-pressure system should keep winds slow from the east, southeast towards the end of the week. Daytime highs should rise to +9 and +15, nighttime lows dropping between +2 and +6, however there is a chance of slight overnight frosts down to -1 degrees Celsius.

The current extended forecast calls for the high-pressure system to linger into next week, as well, promising mostly clear days and nights, very little chance of precipitation and relatively slow winds, which could keep the nights frosty and early mornings foggy.
