Polar winds to bring freeze to Latvia this week

This week will be freezing with polar winds to bring cold air to Latvia, say forecasts.

On Tuesday morning temperatures will drop to -10C in the eastern reaches and to -8..-13C on Wednesday morning across the country and plunge to -14..-17C in parts of Vidzeme and Latgale. 

Temps are sure to drop even further, to about -20C, in the latter half of the week, but they are not to plunge below -25C.

There will be little by way of precipitation, except with snow expected in Kurzeme. The cold spell might continue until March.
