Freezing temperatures to remain in March
According to forecasts by the Estonian Weather Service, below-freezing temperatures are here to stay in March as well, with local temperatures in parts of the country expected to dip as low as -25 degrees Celsius again during the first few days of the month.
During the first few days of March, the weather in Estonia will be dominated by the southern edge of a high pressure system, bringing colder temperatures with it, the Estonian Weather Service has forecast. Interior parts of the country are expected to see lows drops to -20 degrees Celsius, dipping down as low as -25 degrees locally.
Beginning March 5, temperatures are expected to warm up somewhat for a brief period, but still remain below freezing.
A new cold snap, however, will once again bring colder temperatures, with overnight lows reaching as low as -20 degrees Celsius.
Another high-pressure system will bring calmer and significantly warmer weather to Estonia in the final third of the month, with overnight lows remaining below freezing but daytime highs climbing above the freezing point.
Occasional snow can be expected throughout the month, which is expected to change over to sleet and rain by the end of March, but precipitation levels are largely forecast to remain low.
The overall average temperature in March is forecast to remain around or below the average of -2.2-0.2 degrees Celsius. Precipitation levels are forecast to remain within the average range of 28-44 millimeters.
