This Week's Weather: Fear of the Inevitable ({{commentsTotal}})


Those fearing the business-as-usual weather of Estonian Februaries have cause to celebrate, as the people at the Meteorology and Hydrology Institute are predicting nothing colder than -4 C for the new week.

A low-pressure front should move over Estonia on Tuesday evening and Wednesday bringing back rain and or sleet in most areas, but could subside already by Thursday, when temperatures drop to between -1 C and the freezing mark, and even down to -4 C during the night. Coastal winds could gust up to 50 kph, but that is as violent as it will get this week.

Looking further ahead, a second low-pressure system could bring real snow by the weekend, but temperatures will still be around zero Celsius.

Ice roads overflowing

The Road Administration closed all ice roads on Saturday and has not yet reopened them, as water has crept onto the roads.

A ice road connecting the two largest islands of Hiiumaa and Saaremaa was opened on Friday morning, only to be closed again the next day.
