Take note – story published 8 years and 11 months ago

This week the Latvian summer has not been too promising, but tomorrow and the day after will see clear weather, with predictions for the weekend promising warm weather throughout.

Thursday and Friday the weather will be clear with cool nights, reaching +20...+25 during the day and +7...+14 at night.

Southern and southwestern winds are to bring wet and warm air to Latvia. It'll be quite cloudy but it's not expected to rain. The temperature won't fall below +12...+17 in the night and will reach +24...+29 during the day. In the southern parts of the country temperatures can reach +30 to +32 degrees.

The ozone layer will have thinned a bit, so the intensity of the UV radiation will increase. The UV index can reach level 8 in the following days, which is quite rare for Latvia. Such radiation can cause burns on a sensitive skin within a few minutes.

This year the temperature hasn't reached +30 degrees yet. The last few years the temperature has been reached in May.
