March begins with warm weather in Latvia

March in Latvia will begin with warm weather, though temperatures will fall back during the second half of the week, according to LSM's weatherman Toms Bricis.

Until Wednesday, the weather will remain mostly sunny, with air temperatures reaching +3 C to +9 C in the afternoons, at night temperatures in most parts of the country will fall to 0 C to -3 C, along the coast it will remain around +1 C to +2 C at night, so there will still be the potential for ice on many roads.

On Thursday, a north-west wind will come in, bringing colder air, with temperatures rising only to 0 C to +4 C during the day. The coldest weather is expected on Friday and Saturday morning, when the temperature will drop to -3 C to -8 C,  in Vidzeme and Latgale around -10 C. In the afternoons, temperatures will rise slightly above zero in most parts of the country.

Sunday will get warmer and the air will warm up to +2 C to +7 C.

Snow and sleet are also expected in the second half of the week. A few centimeters of snow may form, but it will melt quickly in the afternoon sun.
