Take note – story published 1 year and 4 months ago

Long-lasting frost is no longer expected in Latvia this winter - weather conditions will be changeable, according to current weather forecasts.

This winter started unusually early - from November 17 to December 20, the average air temperature in the country was sub-zero and was the first month-long frost period in Latvia since 2018. 

December was a total of two degrees colder than the norm, but a degree warmer than in 2021.

In early January, the frost returned after heat records, so the average air temperature of the first decade of the month was close to normal, but in mid-January, it climbed four degrees above normal.

Due to cyclones in Scandinavia, rainfall and snow are expected in Latvia on Monday. The air temperature will be 0 to +4 C.

Occasional rains and snows will continue over the week, air temperatures will fall, and over the weekend they can fall below -10 C.

The frost will not be persistent, and in February the temperatures will often climb above zero.
