Estonian summer is evidently over - or at least on hold - this week as a series of low-pressure fronts moving through the Balto-Scandic area are expected to bring yet more cool, damp weather to the country.

The rain that doused most counties on Monday is scheduled to make a return visit on Tuesday, minus the thunder but with a bit more wind. Daytime temperatures are slated to stay in the 17 to 19 C zone in most areas. In the east, however, the mercury could climb as high as 21. After dark, the air should cool off to 9 to 14 C.

A convergence of systems over the area on Wednesday will spell more rain, while highs should again hover just below room temperature at 16 to 20 C.  Thermometers are expected to remain in double digits at night, falling to 10 to 14 C.

Yet another low-pressure system, this one moving over Finland, should bring frequent showers on Thursday. Temperatures are forecast to be similar to Wednesday's both day and night.

The trend-breaker may come on Friday as that pressure system moves off towards Russia. The change should decrease the chances of rain and allow temperatures to climb to 18 to 22 C.
