Finland welcomes the new year in the cold

“At the turn of the year, it is largely cloudy in southern and central Finland. During the night, it can rain a few cents of snow in the southwest and south. In northern Lapland and the Oulu region, the year ends with clear weather, ”he said.

“The best views of the fireworks are in the north. In the south, clouds can limit the visibility of fireworks. “

The north wind brings cold air, keeping temperatures comfortably below freezing even on Saturday. Mercury temperatures are forecast to remain in the south at about five degrees Celsius, in the central parts from 5 to 10 degrees Celsius, and in the north at 10 to 20 degrees Celsius.

“The year 2022 begins with clear and sunny winter weather largely outside the eastern border areas. The area extending from North Karelia to Eastern Lapland is more cloudy, Huutonen summed up.

He added that people traveling elsewhere in the country should remember that snowfall is expected to make road conditions challenging today.

“After frost and snow, road surfaces quickly become slippery and very slippery. The road surface can be so cold that it cannot be thawed with salt. These are challenging days for road maintenance, Huutonen says.

The second low-pressure front is forecast to arrive in Finland on Sunday.
