Weather week in Latvia: a mixed bag

This week the weather over Latvia will be a mixed bag with midweek sunshine followed by more unsettled conditions, according to the latest forecast from the Latvian Environment, Geology and Meteorology Center (LVĢMC).

During the first days of September, the weather will be determined by a large anticyclone centered over Scandinavia, the sky will clear from time to time and no significant precipitation is expected. In the second half of the week there will be more active movement of air masses, which will bring warmer, but in many places also rainier weather.

On Monday in eastern and central districts in particular, rain is expected, possibly also thunderstorms. A slow to moderate north wind will blow, turning gusty during thunderstorms. The air will warm up to + 14 Celsius to + 20 C during the day.

On Tuesday and Wednesday rain will be less common, at times the sky will become clearer and the sun will shine. A slow to moderate northeast or easterly wind will blow. As the sky clears, the thermometer will drop to + 7 C to + 12 C at night, while during the day the thermometer will rise only to + 14 C to + 19 C.

In the second half of the working week, cyclones will become more active above the northern part of Europe, thus several cloud-precipitation zones will cross Latvia. Rain is expected to fall heavily throughout the region. A slow to moderate east wind will continue to blow and the air temperature during the day will rise to + 17 C + 22 C, but at night it will be mild at around + 11 C.

Current forecasts suggest that next weekend will remain relatively warm, but rainy weather and westerly winds will gradually increase.
