Take care on hot Midsummer Friday

Friday, June 24, will be dry, sunny and hot, weather forecasters say.

The wind will remain slow. Precipitation is not expected, there will be few clouds.

The air temperature in the afternoon will rise as high as + 28 degrees Celsius, but in places on the coast, the wind will bring cooler air from the sea, and the temperature will not exceed 22 degrees.

In Rīga, the sun will shine brightly, a very slow wind will blow and the thermometer bar will rise to 27 degrees in the shade.

The weather is determined by an anticyclone. Atmospheric pressure is 1018-1021 hectopascals at sea level.

Prolonged exposure to the sun from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. is not recommended due to intense ultraviolet radiation. People with particularly sensitive skin can burn in the sun after 10-15 minutes in the middle of the day without care.

The water temperature in the largest rivers and lakes, as well as on the sea coast is mostly from 16 to 20 degrees Celsius, according to the data of the Latvian Environment, Geology and Meteorology Center.

The Disease Prevention and Control Department reiterated warnings to take care in the sun by using sunscreen, head coverings and other suitable clothing, and acting sensibly. As previously reported by LSM, the hot spell could last some time.
