What is the overall climate: is it extremely hot or cold, wet or dry, at any time of year, for example?

COLD and wet in winter, moderate and gorgeous summers. It hasnt been above 70 degrees this summer so far, but it can be very nice to sit at the beer gardens. - Jul 24, 2017
Latvia has four distinct seasons - spring, summer, autumn, and winter. The summers can be cool with a few warm or even hot days sprinkled in here and there). Winters aren't too bad- generally in the 20s Fahrenheit, with a few days that may go below 0F. Last winter, we had a couple of snowstorms that left a few inches of snow behind, but nothing too bad. - Sep 21, 2016
Summers are very pleasant, warm but never hot, with long days and some rain. Winters are long and very unpleasant. You may get clear and frigid, painful cold, or even worse you may get months on end of dark, grey days with a mix of drizzle, sleet, and snow. - Jul 11, 2010
