Take precautions as another warm week begins in Latvia

The week starting June 10 will bring more of the same weather-wise, namely warm temperatures, tropical nights and occasional thunderstorms, according to forecasters.  

Monday will be slightly cooler than the hot weekend that just passed, and all the more pleasant for it, but on Tuesday temperaturs will climb once again as a mass of hot air from North Africa arrives in the Baltic region. As a result, temperatures will again reach +30 Celsius in many parts of the country. 

Wednesday and Thursday will be the hottest days of the week, when in the afternoon the thermometer column will rise to between +27 C and + 32 C.

As usual, coastal districts will be slightly cooler, but even at night temperatures will range from +16 C to +21 C.

The second half of the week will see thunderstorms in all regions, sometimes violent but usually of short duration. Caution should be exercised when storms begin. Thunderstorms will be become rarer into the weekend but temperatures will not slack off and will stay around the +30 C mark in the middle of the day.

While many people will take advantage of the weather to head to the beach and lakes, the public is being advised to exercise caution, not only because of the risk of drowning but also because this week ultraviolet radiation will be very high. Sunblock and suitable head coverings are recommended, particularly for children as even 10-15 minutes' exposure to the midday sun may be enough to cause discomfort and burns.
