Saturday and Sunday will see southwesterly, westerly winds, shoreline gusts reaching 20-25 meters per second and 13-18 meters per second in the rest of the country. On Sunday more inland regions  in Vidzeme may see gusts of over 20 meters per second. 

This type of wind can cause mild damage, mostly by breaking individual tree branches or knocking down trees, so be prepared for electrical disruptions.
