After a calm period in the wake of the weekend's storms, stronger winds and are rain forecast for Wednesday.

A new low pressure is forming over Scandinavia and will become increasingly active daytime as it moves across the Gulf of Bothnia. On its fringes over the Baltic, including Estonia, wind speeds will pick up again, and also bring rain during the day.

Overnight Tuesday to Wednesday was cloudy, but clearing in places, and not quite as cold as the preceding night, with temperatures remaining above zero, at 2-10C – the West being the warmer half of the country.

Wednesday morning begins wet and windy, with southwesterlies of 9-15 m/s in gusts up to 24 m/s. Ambient temperatures are 10-11 degrees in the West, 5-7 degrees in the East of the country.

Rainy weather and strong winds will remain the order of the day overnight and in fact heading into the weekend, with average daytime temperatures ranging from 9-16 degrees. Nighttime values will remain above zero at least, on average 4 degrees to 11 degrees. Cloud cover remains, though Sunday is forecast to be somewhat clearer.
