The snow which has fallen on much of Latvia in recent days will linger a few more days, weather forecasters said December 4.
Intense snowfall is expected to hit Latvia in the next several days, with a blanket of snow to cover the country, plus the weather to get very cold starting Sunday, reports LSM.
This week will be rather gray and damp, but not too cold, according to forecasters.
Weather forecasters say this will be a week in which there is a chill at the beginning but milder temperatures towards the tail-end.
Latvia's northern and eastern reaches were covered in snow on October 25 with the thickest snow blanket of a whopping seven centimeters recorded in Gulbene as well as the Līvāni municipality, according to the Latvian Environment, Geology and Meteorology Centre.
This year's first snow is in the forecast, and it is expected it will come with a blizzard.
The clear skies of last week have disappeared and this week will start with strong gusts of wind, according to LSM's weather forecasters.
In the first half of the week, the weather in Latvia will remain sunny and warm, but in the second half of the week, days will be colder and cloudier in most parts, according to weatherman Toms Bricis.
From September 1 to September 19 there has been 121 mm of rainfall recorded in Latvia, making it the rainiest September this century against an average of 71 mm of weather that usually falls this month, according to data by the Latvian Environment, Geology and Meteorology Centre.
