Summer starts receding in earnest

Meteorological fall with average temperatures of fewer than +15C is to arrive in eastern Latvia this week, according to forecasts.

Rain is in the forecast over Latvia each day, particularly Friday on Saturday. Fog is expected to set in at night and the morning.

Nighttime temperatures are to drop to +8..+13C early in the week, and as low as +5 on the night to Tuesday in the Vidzeme cultural region.

They are to increase by +2..+4C on the latter half of the week.

Daytime temperatures are to stay stable at about +18..+24C, however. 

Meteorological fall starts when the average temperatures decrease to +15C. It usually happens around August 18-20 in Vidzeme and Alūksne, and in September in the coastal regions. 

This summer has been unusually long, starting in May 7-9, or a month and a half earlier than usual.
