Thaw and icy roads across Latvia Wednesday morning

On Wednesday, there will be a thaw across Latvia, according to forecasts.

The weather will be overcast, often raining. Maximum air temperature will range between +1 C to +6 C.

Rain and thaw will rapidly melt snow and ice, so large puddles can be formed on roads and streets. Regional roads previously covered by a layer of snow will be transformed into a thick layer of ice, which will be particularly slippery when water pools on it.

According to Latvian State Roads, on Wednesday morning, driving is difficult on most main roads, especially in Vidzeme, Latgale, and Zemgale, and on regional roads across Latvia except around Kuldīga, Liepāja, Saldus, Talsi and Ventspils.

Particular caution must be observed on gravel roads near Valmiera, Cēsis, Limbaži, Talsi, Tukums, Dobele, Gulbene, Balvi, Jēkabpils, Ludza, Preiļi.

The so-called black ice, which is particularly dangerous, can form.
