Vytautas Sakalauskas of the Lithuanian Hydrometeorological Service told BNS that temperatures last night ranged from minus 13-18 degrees in most of the country to minus 19-20 in the northwestern part of the country.

"We are in for some snow next night and in the morning. Temperatures will be milder, at minus 11-16 at night and minus 4-9 during the day," Sakalauskas said.

"No snow is in the forecast for Saturday and Sunday. We'll have some sunny intervals and lower temperatures will return, falling to minus 18-19 in some places at night, but the days will be sunny and pleasant," the forecaster said.

"We'll have above zero temperatures starting Monday. It will get a little colder in the middle of the week, but the severe cold is not expected to return," he added.

Doctors in Vilnius and Kaunas last night received no cold-related emergency calls. Three frozen homeless people were brought to hospitals in Klaipėda, but they did not need serious medical treatment.
