The Estonian Weather Service on Friday issued a warning about high temperatures and the risk of forest fires over the next week.

The service said that between July 2 and July 10 there will be a warm air mass over Estonia and average temperatures will be 20 degrees (c) or higher in most places. Additionally, in some places, it will rise as high as 29 degrees.

Between, July 7 and July 10 the temperature will rise as high as 32 degrees (c).

The risk of forest fires in eastern Estonia is "high or extremely high" during this time.
