The weather scene in Lithuania is taking a turn as snowfall engulfs the northern regions of the country. The intensity of the precipitation is however lessening as the heaviest snowfall gradually moves away, resulting in smaller amounts of snow. Meanwhile, the cloud cover continues to remain thickest in the north, with the southern regions basking under clearer skies. Moderate westerly and southwesterly winds have been forecasted, and temperatures are expected to hover below the freezing point, ranging from 0 to -5 degrees Celsius.
As the week draws to a close, Friday night promises a mostly cloudy sky with occasional clear intervals. However, snowfall is not expected to cover the entire country. The northern and western regions have the highest chances of receiving snow, albeit light in the north. The coastal regions, on the other hand, might witness heavier snow due to the accumulation of clouds over the sea. Temperature-wise, a further drop to -3 to -8 degrees Celsius is expected, with potential colder spots plunging to -9 to -11 degrees Celsius if the skies clear.
A Glimpse into Friday's Daytime Weather
Friday's daytime weather will mirror Thursday's with continued heavy cloud cover and occasional sunny intervals. Snow is expected in most parts of the country, especially in the western regions. Winds are predicted to ease and shift to northwestern and northern directions. The highest daytime temperatures will remain similar to those of Thursday, ranging from 0 to -5 degrees Celsius.
Weather Forecast for the Coming Days
According to the weather report from Kaunas County, over the next 30 days, snow is expected on 11 days, with the maximum temperature touching 4 degrees Celsius on the 14th, 15th, and 17th of December, and the minimum temperature plummeting to -10 degrees Celsius on the 9th of December. Air quality is deemed acceptable, although there might be a moderate health concern for a small number of people who are unusually sensitive to air pollution.
