Reasonable chance of clear skies for Latvia's centenary celebrations

This week the weather will start off mild but wet and become considerably colder during next weekend's centenary celebrations, according to forecasters.

Monday morning, the sky was cloudy across Latvia, with air temperatures in the morning amounting to +1 degrees Celsius in eastern Latgale to + 7 C on the western Kurzeme coast, with southern and southeasterly wind gusts of 9-12 meters per second, according to the Latvian Center for Environment, Geology and Meteorology.

The air temperature will be from +3 to + 5 degrees Celsius in the east of the country to +9 to + 11 degrees in coastal Kurzeme by Wednesday. 

There will be periods of rainfall, with the strongest downpour expected on Wednesday night.

In the second half of the week, an anticyclone will intensify in our region, so there will be no significant precipitation, the skies will clear and temperatures will start to drop, but bigger changes in the weather will start right around the national holiday - November 18.

Current projections show that the prevailing southern and western winds throughout the week will be replaced by a gusty and chilling northern wind. On Sunday, November 18, the daytime air temperature will be hovering around zero, and there is reason to hope that the celebrations will be accompanied by clear skies at least part of the time.

After the holidays, temperatures are expected to dip below freezing, starting a period of considerably colder weather.
