Just before noon on Tuesday, a record temperature of 14.1 degrees Celsius for November in Finland was recorded at Helsinki’s Vuosaari Harbour, according to the Finnish Meteorological Institute.

Monday brought the highest November temperature ever recorded in the country before Tuesday’s new record. Monday’s reading of 13.3 degrees Celsius was made in Jomala, an inland area of the largest island in the maritime Åland province. The municipality held the previous record, too: 13 degrees measured on November 12, 1999.

Typically the upper range of early-November temperatures in Finland is between 4 and 7 degrees Celsius.
