Damn cold June weather

Hearing a foreigner complaining about Finnish weather is quite common. Normally that happens in the winter or spring and you can then always refer to the beautiful Finnish summer that makes up for all the coldness and darkness.

7 degrees yesterday in Helsinki

However this year things seem to be a bit different. Yesterday was by far the coldest summer day of the year with temperatures below 10 degrees in Helsinki. In some parts of Finland it even snowed. That hasn't happened in decades. Iltasanomat titled yesterday, that it's even colder here than in Alaska at the moment.

And all that a few days before Juhannus, the midsummer celebration and brightest day of the year. The temperatures are predicted to rise again but it will still be one of the coldest Juhannus weekends in a long time.
