This Week's Weather: Still Wet
A pattern of windy, rapidly-changing conditions has settled on our corner of the Baltic, ushering in more gusts, showers and general dampness for the week ahead.
Stormy skies are expected on Tuesday, when a new low-pressure zone is due to move in during the early hours, bringing with it rain and strong winds. The latter should gust up to 90 kph on the western islands and 70 kph in other coastal areas. Temperatures will remain much as they have been - 6 to 9 C during the day, dropping to 3 to 6 C at night.
Winds on Wednesday should be calmer and showers less frequent, but the weather will by no means be dry. Temperatures by day should be a repeat of Tuesday's, but overnight the mercury could dip to 0 C in places.
A small respite may come on Thursday when the air pressure should increase for a while. There will still be occasional showers. Winds should start to pick up once again during the day, with temperatures ranging from 5 to 8 C.
Overnight temperatures of 1 to 6 C combined with another wave of moist air might even trigger sleet on Friday, but otherwise we can just expect more rain. The good news is that current data show no signs of storm-like winds on the way. Daytime highs should range from 3 to 8 C.
