Snowfall is expected in all of Finland

Some areas may get 20, even 30 centimeters of snow. Heikki SinisaloMeteorologist of the Meteorological Institute, told Helsingin sanomat newspaper.

Today, snow is forecast in Northern Finland. More snow is expected in the southern regions early on Tuesday. A winter system is set to track east, while another will come from the south, covering a large part of southern and central Finland on Wednesday.

The snow is forecast to continue until Thursday.

– Snow is expected especially on the south coast, but also more widely, Sinisalo commented. – Bad road conditions are on the horizon. For example, road conditions in the south will be bad or very bad on Wednesday.

The Finnish Meteorological Institute has warned motorists in the northern parts of the country for Monday. The warning expands on Tuesday to cover the central, eastern and southern parts of the country, and Kainuu and North Ostrobothnia will follow on Wednesday.

Temperatures were below freezing throughout the country during the weekend. In the areas of the southern coast, the mercury is predicted to hover around zero for a couple of days starting tomorrow before dropping below zero again.

December is expected to continue to be wintry and slightly colder than average, according to the latest forecast of the European Center for Medium-Range Weather Forecasts (ECMWF).

Sinisalo told Helsingin Sanomat that the cold and wintry weather seems to continue. The average temperatures in Finland for the next few weeks will be at most five degrees below the long-term average.

“It’s not freezing cold weather, although there may be daily drops [in temperatures]. The weather looks set to be cold, cloudy and occasionally snowy for the foreseeable future, he said.

While he stopped short of predicting holiday weather, he seemed to offer some reason for optimism.

“[This week] more snow is going to be delivered to all parts of the country. It can be quite a lot. It naturally means that the snow will not melt as easily, even if we get warmer air. The future does indeed look snowy and wintry.
