Take note – story published 2 years ago

After a chilly Sunday night, Monday is set to be a day of sunshine with maximum air temperatures of between +12 Celsius and +15 C, a little cooler along the coast, according to the latest forecasts of the Latvian Environment, Geology and Meteorology Center.

In the first half of the week, the weather will remain calm - a slow wind will blow, the days will be warm, and there will be no precipitation. But rain will return in the middle of the week, the wind will get stronger and the days will be colder in the second half of the week.

On Tuesday, as an anticyclone moves further southeast and weakens, atmospheric pressure will gradually decrease, but the weather will be similar to the day before - the sky will be mostly clear at night and the wind will remain slow, and the clouds will gradually increase. The wind will blow gently from the south and temperatures could reach as high as +18 C.

On Wednesday, the weather will be affected by a cyclone over Scandinavia - clouds will cover the sky and the weather front will cross Latvia from the northwest, carrying short-lived rain to many parts overnight. A slow to moderate southwesterly wind will be blowing, which in some places will reach 15 m/s. The day will be as warm as the day before, but in the extreme south-west the thermometer will approach + 20 C.

The second half of the working week is  expected to be windy. Moderate, mostly southwesterly and westerly winds will blow, which will reach 15-18 m/s in gusts during the day, though the wind will subside at night. Precipitation is likely only in some places in the eastern part of the country. The air temperature during daylight hours will not exceed from + 10 C to + 16 C, but at night the air will cool to +5 C to +9 C. 

Precipitation will increase with the arrival of the weekend and rain is expected throughout the country.
