Scorching heat wave set to rise in Latvia

A scorching heat wave is set to continue to Latvia this week with temperatures set to rise to 37 degrees in some locations. 

Most of Latvia will experience 35 degrees celsius, but in some places, temperatures may soar to 37 degrees, the Latvian Environment, Geology and Meteorology Center has warned.

Brief showers or thunderstorms are possible in the afternoon.

Meteorologist Laura Krumina told LNT TV that several heat records may be broken in Latvia today.

The scorching 36.7 degrees celsius registered yesterday in Ventspils broke the all-time high record in Latvia, registered back in 1943 (36.4).

Around 31 people were admitted to hospital for heat related injuries, Delfi reports. Health experts say main problems are caused not drinking enough water. Residents are also cautioned to use sun cream in very hot locations and not to expose themselves for long periods in the sun.
