Monday will be mainly cloudy and as a result of the operation of the cyclone above the south of Belarus, in the first half of the day in the south-eastern regions, from the middle of the day also in places in the central districts, rain is expected. In places this culd be prolonged. Winds will be slow to moderate north-easterlies or northerlies, and the air temperature will rise to + 9 degrees Celsius to + 14 C, while in the south-east it will be colder at only + 4 C to + 8 C. Monday night will be a cold one. In most parts of the country the air will cool to + 1 C to + 6 C, a few degrees will be warmer on the coast.

In the second half of the week , as the wind swings from the south, a warmer mass of air will flow into Latvia and the air temperature will gradually rise. At night, a large area of ​​precipitation will reach Latvian territory from the west on Friday, therefore rain is expected throughout the country, which will continue on Friday as well. The wind will also intensify, becoming gusty along the coast and reaching 15-18 m / s.
