Strong wind expected Thursday and Friday in Latvia

The Latvian Environment, Geology and Meteorology Center has issued an orange warning for strong wind on Thursday and Friday.

From Thursday at 5 AM until Friday at 8 AM wind gusts on the west coast of Kurzeme will reach 25-27 meters per second (m/s). 

Windy weather is also expected in the rest of the country, but not more than 20 m/s. 

As the storm in the open Baltic Sea is expected to be strong, with wind gusts exceeding 30 m/s, latest forecasts should be followed as there is a risk that the current storm directions could change.

The strong wind will also be accompanied by snow and blizzard as temperatures are to fall in the coming days.
