Weekend weather: freeze before the thaw

This weekend the weather will be determined by a band of high pressure from the south-west and south, bringing clear skies and low temperatures in many places according to the latest forecasts.

Snow is expected only in south-eastern districts, but patches of fog will develop in some areas. 

On Saturday, the air temperature both at night and during the day is expected to be in the range -3 Celsius to -8 C in the west, and -8 C to -13 C in the east. Saturday night into Sunday morning will be particularly cold and could see the thermometer drop as low as -16 C, but during Sunday day the air will gradually start to warm up, remaining below freezing in most places but potentially hitting even +4 C on the sea coast.

Cold and mostly dry weather is expected on Monday with a moderate to strong southeast wind blowing in gusts of 15-16 m/s in coastal areas. 

From Tuesday a wide cyclone over the Atlantic Ocean will bring a warmer mass of air to the Baltic region and a widespread thaw will occur with snow replaced by sleet and rain. The air temperature both at night and during the day should be around +2 C to +4 C. According to current forecasts, similar weather conditions will remain until the end of the working week.
