Wet and windy week awaits in Latvia

Take note – story published 5 years ago

The golden days of Fall are finally over with this week bringing a clear change in weather patterns.

This week's weather will be windy everywhere with storms on the coast, and there will be a lot of rainfall, and not only rain, but sleet possible.

Tuesday will be particularly rainy in Kurzeme region, where rainfall of 20-30 milliliters per square meter will be equivalent to around half of the monthly norm.

A strong cyclone will reach the Baltic region on Wednesday night, arriving via Kurzeme.

At the coast, gusts of wind will be up to about 30 meters per second. In other parts of the country, the wind will be much weaker, but interruptions to power supplies are possible if trees fall onto power lines and so forth. 

Wednesday could also see the debut of wet snow and sleet among the rain, but it will not settle.

In the second half of the week there will be less precipitation and the wind will ease off somewhat.

Temperatures during this week will be mostly in the range of +5 C to + 10 C, sometimes up to +13 degrees, though the strong wind will make it feel colder.

In the second half of the week, when the sky is clearer, night-time frosts can be expected.

Next week, warmer air from the Mediterranean will enter our region and it will likely be considerably warmer than normal for the time of year again.
