Takatalvi in Helsinki

It's probably the weather phenomenon foreigners have the most difficulties adjusting to in Finland: Takatalvi. Takatalvi is the returning winter that comes after there have been already the first warm days of spring like weather.

winter returns to Helsinki

After last weeks warm temperatures with up to 10 degrees winter came back with lots of snow during the weekend. But compared to last years -20 degrees in March this year is still rather mild. And don't worry, it is just a short cold period before the real spring will arrive in Finland and snow and ice will be gone for good.

  1. Today we have had the warmest day of the year so far with +17 degrees! It's so nice to see a bit of blue sky and sunshine after the rainiest winter in 150 years or something. So today I'm missing Helsinki a bit less than usual :)
