Take note – story published 2 years ago

Saturday will be mainly sunny across Latvia, though occasional showers and thunderstorms may be felt in some districts. However, they will not be as violent as in recent days.

A slow to moderate westerly wind will blow and the air temperature will rise to between +21 Celsius and + 25 C.

In Rīga, the amount of cloud will slowly decrease, precipitation is unlikely, and the temperature will warm up to +24 C.

The Latvian Center for Environment, Geology and Meteorology (LVĢMC) warns that in large parts of Kurzeme there is a high fire risk in forests, so particular caution should be taken.

On Sunday, the amount of cloud will gradually decrease, but at night in eastern districts and during the day also in the west, some rain is expected and thunderstorms remain a possibility. A slow wind will blow, which will be gusty during thunderstorms. 

The air temperature at night will remain within the range of +14 C to +20 C, while during the day the air will warm up to +21 C to +26 C.

The summer heat will continue next week, however it will be less extreme and the thermometer bar is unlikely to reach the +30 C mark again in June.

At the beginning of the week, a warm air mass will dominate over the territory of Latvia and the weather conditions will stabilize. The sky will be partly cloudy and light rain is expected only on Monday in Kurzeme. The slow wind will continue which on Wednesday will turn from the north. At night the air will cool to + 14 C to + 19 C, while during the day the thermometer will rise to + 22 C + 28 C.

In the second half of the week the wind will remain slow, and the amount of precipitation will further decrease. In many places, the clouds will dissipate and the sky will be clear. Short-term rain showers can be expected only in the eastern part of the country.
