Warm and slightly wet week leads to Independence Day

The week from Lāčplēsis Day on November 11 to Independence Day on November 18 will be a warm one for the season, and could even see temperature records fall, according to forecasters.

The coldest weather is expected on Tuesday morning, with temperatures in most of Vidzeme region around freezing point, and elsewhere in the country a few degrees higher, but following that, even night temperatures will be mostly in the range of +3 Celsius to + 8 C, and some nights could be even warmer.

Meanwhile daytime temperatures from Tuesday to Thursday will be extremely mild at +7 C to + 13 C, though Friday will be a few degrees cooler.

In mid-November, the warmest days in the historical records are typically in the range of +10 C to +15 C, so it is possible that new records could be established in some locations.

Wednesday to Friday will be rainier than the rest of the week, though some rainfall is possible every day.

Slow to moderate southeasterly and southerly winds will prevail, so there may be patches of fog forming, too.

Current forecasts show that November 18 will be mostly cloudy with a chance of light rain and temperatures of +5 C to + 11 C. The wind is expected to be light but cloud is predicted to be low - which may interfere with the expected flypast during the traditional Indepdendence Day parade.
