Monday will pass without precipitation, while on Tuesday and Wednesday it will rain in places, reports the Center of Environment, Geology and Meteorology of Latvia.

A slow wind will blow throughout the country, so fog may form in some areas at night, which will reduce visibility! At night, the air will mostly cool down to +6…+9 degrees. On Monday, the thermometer will mostly stay within the range of +13…+18 degrees, while on Tuesday and Wednesday the air will warm up to +15…+20 degrees, in some places on the coast it will be a few degrees cooler.

As the effect of the anticyclone persists, the remaining days of the week also promise to be favorable. In the second half of the week, clouds will mix with the sun and rain will be observed locally on some days. Nights and days will get warmer – the thermometer will drop to +7…+12 degrees during the night hours, and it will rise to +17…+23 degrees during the day, but the air temperature will be slightly lower in the coastal areas.
