Hello Pricilla. Great summers to enjoy becomes quite hot at times. Little rain in May to October and reaches 109 F often. The down side is the winters are long and if snow it is deep and lasting.If not it can freeze 38 cel below. The good thing for me who hates the cold is that we can stay in with log fires and a well insulated house. That is the secret here. It also means I may save up during the heavy winters and my pensions come handy when spring comes. I bought a car last spring outright. This spring a new conservatory on the front of house. It is fairly cheap here so we have to stock pile logs and food ready for winter. Others find winter sports but not us. It is hard keeping warm when first living here as the summer cons one into thinking the winter mild. Then bang bear skin hats and insulated fur wraps and gloves and socks and trouser and overcoats. No sucking mintoes here to keep warm it is a hard Siberian prospect to witness a winter here. Once one is set up it isnt that bad.

Hello  :)

I am an avid lover of the cold and the weather here has been very hot, for me. I went through an entire slew of viruses while i adapt to this climate, but overall the weather is enjoyable; especially in the evenings.

Hello, In Latvia, there is a corner and for fans of beach holidays - they have a direct road to sunny Jurmala, where for tens of kilometers along the Gulf of Riga stretched the picturesque coast of golden sands. This city is filled with natural beauty, there are dense and fragrant pine forests, there are medicinal mineral springs, the air is saturated with the smells of the sea and pines.

Latvia has a temperate marine climate with mild summers, mild winters and often high humidity and precipitation.
