Mid-May snow in east of Latvia

Predictions that Latvia would receive a dusting of snow on May 12 proved accurate - though the snowfall was mainly limited to the east of the country.

Social media quickly filled with images more suited to winter than spring from across Latvia's easternmost region, Latgale, including at the Mark Rothko Art Center in Daugavpils. Eastern Vidzeme was also visited by a few flakes of the white stuff.

Snow may continue to fall in places in the afternoon, according to forecasters, and drivers are advised to take extra care on slippery roads.
