Week of mainly mild weather in Latvia to ease us towards spring

Take note – story published 5 years ago

At risk of tempting fate, the worst of winter appears to be behind us with very mild weather forecast for this week and only the prospect of some frosty weather at the beginning of March to remind us that it's supposed to be a lot colder.

The beginning of this week will remain unusually warm and until Thursday, the weather will mostly be sunny. Only in the east of the country - in eastern Vidzeme and Latgale - will there be more cloud and a little precipitation possible, most likely in the form of unpleasant sleet.

Northwesterly winds will prevail, with occasional gusts of 15 meters per second.

Air temperatures at night will be close to zero or slightly below, and during the day will range from +3 Celsius to a balmy + 9 C.

There will be a brief interlude of frost Friday night, with the temperature dropping to -2 C to - 7 C, though it will be considerably milder on the coast. Next weekend will bring a reminder that winter hasn't completely given up with Vidzeme and Latgale possibly seeing temperatures fall as low as -10 C or even - 12 C at night. However temperatures will remain above freezing during the day and next week promises to bring another sequence of mild, spring-like weather.
