Weather week: cooling down after sultry Midsummer

Only after the Midsummer holiday will the current heatwave across Latvia significantly decrease, according to the latest forecasts.

According to LSM weatherman Toms Bricis, in most parts of the country, until Midsummer's Day, the air temperature in the afternoons will reach +28 Celsius to + 33 C, in some places up to +34 C or even + 35 C.

Only in western Kurzeme is it likely to start cooling off by Midsummer's Day, where along the coast the temperature will no longer exceed + 26 C, which is still plenty hot enough for most tastes.

Nights will still be sultry and rain and thunderstorms will become more frequent in the coming days. However, they will cool and freshen the air temporarily, because immediately after the rain the temperature will rise again. Local storms could be severe, with hail and stormy gusts of wind, so caution should be exercised when a storm is seen and heard to be approaching.

Current forecasts show that in the evening and night of Midsummer, there is a possibility of thunderstorms, but they will affect only certain places, not the whole country.

After the holidays, however, the temperature will drop a few degrees, mostly in the range of +20 C to + 28 C. In general hotter weather will remain in the east with cooler weather along the coast in the west.
