Monday's weather in Estonia will be particularly warm, with temperatures of up to 32C and winds, predominantly from the Southeast. A low pressure area on the move from the southern Baltic to southern Sweden, whose eastern edge has reached Estonia, has brought warm air with it.

Later in the day as the low itself reaches the westernmost extremities of Estonia, the more familiar conditions of heavy rain and thunder are expected, though the evening will remain noticeably warm nationwide.

After a mostly clear night, Monday morning has also dawned to clear skies and warm weather – with ambient temperatures up to 24C, tempered by southeasterlies of 3-8 m/s, in gusts up to 12 m/s.

The day will get warmer still, with clear and dry weather and temperatures up to 32C inland. Again, the wind will take the edge of this, particularly in coastal areas, where the temperature will hover around the 24C-mark. Wind in gusts up to 17 m/s.

In the afternoon, clouds will start to gather more, however, and the Western littoral also southwestern Estonia can expect strong thunderstorms and strong winds, with a chance of hail, too.

Southeasterlies of 3-11 m/s in gusts up to 25 m/s in those areas affected by storms.

Nonetheless it will remain warm in the evening, as high as 28C in places on the mainland, cooler (19-22C) on the islands.

These extremes will dissipate, however, in the coming days, and the more familiar wet conditions experienced this summer will return, to the end of the week.

While the winds will still be strong on Tuesday, they will die down after that, and air temperatures will peak at 24C.
