Many areas of Finland’s Arctic Lapland province were locked in a deep freeze.
The night was a brutally cold -29 degrees in the municipalities of Kittilä and Salla.
Icy conditions were also present farther south. In South Ostrobothnia the temperature plunged to -25C in several places.
Fog clouds contributed to Finnish Lapland’s mildest nighttime lows of around -12C, which were recorded in the municipality Utsjoki near the Norwegian border.
