Summery conditions could stage a comeback in some parts of Finland on Saturday, but it is expected to be windy across the country over the weekend, according to Yle meteorologists.
Most of Finland has seen unsettled conditions all week, but a possible break in the cloud cover could be in store on Saturday, which is graduation day across the country.
“It’s possible that the clouds will blow over by Saturday, giving the sun a chance to shine in southern and central Finland,” Yle meteorologist Joonas Koskela said.
More rain, too
A low pressure area will, however, still hang over Lapland (North) on Saturday, bringing scattered showers to northern areas. Another band of rain is moving in from Sweden to western Finland on Saturday.
Up north temperatures on Saturday will hover between 5-10 degrees Celsius and range from 15-20 degrees in central and southern parts.
Weather forecasters said they expect temperatures to warm up next week, possibly to Finland’s elusive 25-degree-Celsius heat threshold, should predictions come true.
