Jackets and sweaters, stockings and boots, snug hats and mittens . . . — to quote snow poet Ogden Nash — here’s your outfit for Wednesday evening in southern parts of the country. Our famous meteorological institute forecasts snow showers and a temperature of about +2 degrees Celsius.

The snow comes down mostly as sleet, and the wind is powerful that makes the temperature feel well over -5 degrees. During the Thursday night, the snow and sleet area will spread to the most parts of the southern and western Finland. The snow will pile from a couple of centimeters up to ten.
