In the first half of the week, the weather in mainland Estonia will be dry and hot, with isolated showers on the islands. Highs will reach 30 degrees Celsius on Monday, with further rain forecast in the second half of the week.
On Monday, Estonia will be on the periphery of a low-pressure system moving from the south-east to the north-west through the Baltic Sea. Simultaneously, a northern high pressure zone will arrive in Estonia. The high pressure system's arid impact will intensify around the Gulf of Riga, and the sky will clear.
On Monday morning, the mainland will be partly cloudy, with scattered clouds and little or no precipitation. The north shore gets mostly east and northward winds, with gusts reaching 11 meters per second. The temperature will be between 18 and 21 degrees.

There will be few clouds and no precipitation this evening. Wind speed 2-8 meters per second from the east and northeast. The temperature will be between 20 and 26 degrees.
