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.
While we are on matters meteorological, here is a nice image of the Baltic Sea courtesy of NASA.
This is no Van Gogh ? but the #Landsat image of the Baltic Sea ? shows how @NASA and other agencies monitor phytoplankton populations, or algae blooms, through satellite ? data. Our new book, Earth, showcases the art we see in satellite imagery.https://t.co/NOTrpEB2uQ pic.twitter.com/WvYu8AR2br— NASA Earth (@NASAEarth) February 24, 2019
