The state weather service (Riigi Ilmateenistus) has issued an amber (level 1) weather warning for Monday December 28.
The service says that southeasterly winds will reach gusts of 15 m/s inland, up to 20 m/s on the coasts and 22 m/s on the western islands.
At the same time, rising air temperatures will lead to a risk of slippery road conditions, compounded by snow in many parts of the country, and freezing rain in the southeast.
Level 1 weather warnings are described by the weather service as being: " … potentially dangerous. Be attentive if you intend to practice activities exposed to meteorological risks. Keep informed about the forecast of meteorological conditions."
