This Weekend's Weather: Windy, Mostly Dry ({{commentsTotal}})


The recent pattern of mixed conditions with little rain is likely to hold for the next few days, paving the way for a mild but somewhat breezy weekend.

Temperatures tonight may dip below zero around the southern border, according to the latest forecast from the Meteorology and Hydrology Institute, but will stay as high as 8 C on the coasts and in the 0 to +5 C range elsewhere.

Thanks to a high-pressure front that is loitering over Estonia, Saturday should be dry. But as its effects will be wearing off that day, we can expect southwesterly and westerly winds to pick up. These should grow to 18 to 36 kph, gusting to a bit over 50 kph at the coasts. Daytime temperatures are slated to be the familiar 10 to 13 C, dropping to a not-so-terrible 4 to 10 C at night.

The highest chance of rain - accompanied by strong winds - will come in the nighttime hours between Saturday and Sunday, with only scattered showers on the books after sunrise. The winds should die down during the day as well. Sunday's highs are expected to range from 10 to 14 C during the day before decreasing to 5 to 11 C at night.

Longer range forecasts are now calling for a continuation of the relatively mild autumn temperatures through the middle of next week, after which the mercury should begin to dip.
