Rain and cold arrive

Take note – story published 9 years and 8 months ago

Forecasts this week call for frequent rains, blustery winds and significantly lower temperatures, cutting off the pleasantly warm and dry weather that marked September’s first half.

Monday will be cloudy and rainy, with downpours at times getting heavy. Winds from the southwest will be slow, and in varying directions at the western Kurzeme seacoast. Daytime high temperatures will reach between +12 and +17 degrees Celsius.

Overnight to Tuesday winds will turn from the north, reaching gale force at the seacoasts, with speeds up to 18-22 meters per second. This will bring temperatures down considerably with cold air masses keeping highs down around +10 degrees, possibly slightly warmer in Kurzeme’s open seacoasts, where the sun may pop through the clouds occasionally.

Overnight to Wednesday will likely mark the first freeze of the season. Winds will die down as skies clear and temperatures dip swiftly. Inland districts of Vidzeme and Latgale provinces should expect not only surface frosts, but freezing temperatures around -4 degrees Celsius. Elsewhere around the land lows will hover between -1 and +5 degrees, bringing widespread frosts.

While Wednesday is expected to pass with little to no precipitation, scattered cloudy and partly sunny skies, with highs around +10 to +14 degrees, Thursday will see a return of heavy rains. Winds from the west will bring gusts up to 20 meters per second back to the coasts. Daytime highs will stay between +10 and +16 degrees.
