The temperature may still rise in the afternoon.

Previously, the highest temperature on that date was recorded in 1990, when it was +12.2 C.

In the rest of the country the air temperature has reached +4 C to +11 C. This is the warmest day since last November, when temperatures reached +13.9 C in Riga on November 6.

February's absolute peak temperature has not been topped, as on February 26, 1989, Liepāja recorded +15.5 C.

Over the weekend it will be cooler, but in the afternoons the temperature will rise above zero throughout the country.
