Climate & Weather in Latvia

Flag of Latvia
 

Latvia has a humid, continental and temperate climate influenced by the Baltic Sea in the coastal west. There are four distinctive seasons featuring warm summer, mild spring and autumn and cold winters.

May is the sunniest month having also the smallest amount of precipitation. Summer starts in mid June and continues till the beginning of September. July and August are the warmest months with temperatures occasionally reaching 30C (86F). Although precipitation is distributed relatively evenly throughout the year, July and August are also the month with the heaviest rainfall. During winter, Latvia is dominated by cold winds from the interior of Russia which usually cause severe snowfalls and very low temperatures, with normal daytime temperatures in the range of -10C to 5C (14F to 41F), sometimes dropping at night to -25C (-13F) and lower.

Due to its northern latitude, Latvie enjoys very long days during summer. In late June the twilight comes near midnight and the sun rises again around 4am.
