Strong winds start a warm but rainy week

With gusts of wind reaching 30 m/s, Monday has started much like the rest of the week will follow, with warm weather (for December), rain and gusts of wind.

It'll be raining every day in Latvia, and some snow is expected to fall over the eastern regions of Latvia. The air temperature at night will be, the whole week, at about +1..+6 degrees, and 0..-2 until Thursday in the eastern regions. During the day it'll be +2..+3 in the east and +7..+9 in the coastal regions.

The wind is expected to subside until the weekend when gusts of up to 25 m/s are expected. The warm weather is expected to last until mid-December so no freeze is expected until then.

The ongoing storm has blown off part of the roof of the Ziemeļkurzeme hospital of Ventspils, tweeted mayor Aivars Lembergs.
