“Six of Finland’s 10 warmest years have been proven since 2010” markiert Pauli Jokinen, FMI meteorologist.
January, June and November were all the second warmest in history. In November, the monthly high temperature record was broken twice, with mercury first rising to 14.7 ° C in Pori in Satakunta on 3 November and then to 16.6 ° C in Mariehamn in Åland on 6 November.
December was similarly unusually warm throughout the country, with average temperatures ranging from just over 4 ° C in the southwestern archipelago to -9 ° C in Utsjoki, Finland’s northernmost municipality. The largest deviation from the long-term average was recorded in Western Lapland, where mercury fluctuated around 7 ° C above normal.
The thickness of snow at the end of last month was 10–20 centimeters lower than average in all parts of the country except Western Lapland. The snow cover was measured to be 5–15 cm in the southern and central parts and 20–40 cm in the northern parts of Finland.
