We leave for Riga on friday. I’m still trying to decide what to pack and which coat to wear. Wikipedia mentions February can mean -20°C but I doubt that’ll happen during our visit. Its now -2°C, but according to the 5 Day Forecast from the BBC Weather Centre, they’re expecting lower temperatures and possibly even snow. I have heard though that the wind chill is much lower than it can be here. Must be the difference in maritime and continental land climate according to the Köppen climate classification (do they still teach this in schools?). I think I’ll take my medium thick coat.
