Weather in Estonia on Friday and Saturday will still be summer-like, albeit a little chillier, but rain will pick up late on Saturday, carrying over to the new week and marking the end of the summer months, the State Weather Service (Riigi ilmateennistus) says. Overnight temperatures over the weekend will be markedly chillier than they have been up to now.
Friday will see showers in some regions of Estonia, as a low-pressure area is moving from the Baltics toward Russia. The highest chance of rain is in eastern Estonia, close to the border.
The temperature on Friday around noon is expected to remain between 16-20 C, with southerly winds of 2-8 m/s.
Friday evening will see the precipitation petering out, with cooler temperatures of 13-16 C across Estonia, and the wind speed will remain up to 7 m/s. Friday will seemingly be the last pleasant August night.
Summer's last stand is forecast to give over to a rough defeat, as stormy weather is expected to pick up late on Saturday, carrying through to Sunday. While Saturday will still be pleasant, temperatures up to 19 C, overnight temperatures could drop down to 6 C.
