This Weekend's Weather: Heat Wave Ends, Three Cheers for Tõravere ({{commentsTotal}})


After a week that saw the country's summer high of 32.5 C set in Jõgeva, and many other season highs in the interior, things are changing fast.

The warmth will linger longest in the east, but isolated T-storms and showers are already leaving cooler air in their wake in the west, and that will be the temperature trend for the next week or so, with daytime highs clustered around the 20 C mark instead of threatening to crack 30 C.

Friday night will remain warm in most spots - 13-18 C - and subsequent nights will be in the 10-16 C range.   

Scattered showers will be the mode for the weekend, with a more organized line of rain clouds expected to sweep over the country from west to east on Monday. In general, in the upcoming days, expect there to be at least as much cloud as sun; probably more.


In other weather news, the World Climate Research Programme WCRP last week awarded recognition to Estonia's Tartu-Tõravere weather station, along with a station in Japan, for superb data quality of its solar radiation measurements. It also highlighted the meteorology station's on-time record in sending data in to the Baseline Surface Radiation Network, resulting a very consistent data series.
