Southern and central Finland are seeing scattered showers on Thursday, though rains will move eastward towards the end of the day.

Cooler temperatures will follow the rains, and Friday will be relatively windy and sunny across the country before new showers move in.

”We’re expecting typical autumn weather,” said Yle meteorologist Matti Huutonen.

Temperatures on Friday will stay below 10 degrees Celsius in most of Finland. A more drastic cool-down is expected after the weekend.

”Next week we’ll have to start watching out for slippery roads,” Huutonen explained.
