Yle’s weather forecast anticipates that Tuesday’s warm weather will continue on Wednesday in many areas, particularly in the south-east — if a bit overcast.

A low pressure system is expected to arrive from the southwest, bringing rain and possible thunderstorms to some regions on Wednesday.

In the southeast, it is possible that part of a warm weather system currently hovering over Central Europe could deliver temperatures reaching nearly 20 degrees Celsius in the area on Wednesday.

Elsewhere in Finland temperatures will be below 15 degrees and in many places significantly cooler. However, while it will be rainy across many areas of Finnish Lapland, temperatures should remain above freezing.

The Finnish Meteorological Institute (FMI) forecasts that Wednesday’s daytime high temperatures will be between 8 to 14 degrees in southern areas, around 10 degrees in central regions and between 2 to 7 in Lapland.

It was unusually warm in central Europe on Tuesday, particularly in the east, with countries including Poland, the Czech Republic and Hungary seeing temperatures above 25 degrees.
