If the heat intensifies to +33 degrees next week, the red alert will replace the orange.

On Sunday evening, thunderstorms are locally possible in the evening, but during the day it will be dry and sunny.

The water temperature in major rivers and lakes is mainly +17 C to +23 C, at sea +15 C to +18 C, according to data from the Latvian Environment, Geology and Meteorology Centre.
