On Friday the temperatures are, according to the Finnish Meteorological Institute, going to climb over 20 degrees Celsius in southern and western parts of the country.

This is happening because of a high-pressure area that is hovering over Scandinavia.

On Sunday, the temperatures could even rise over 25.1 degrees, exceeding the definition of hot weather in Finland.

If the winds are favorable, according to Meteorologist Juha Tuomala, the warm zone will cover Kymenlaakso and Finland Proper, reaching all the way to Satakunta and Ostrobothnia. Even some parts in Lapland will get their share of summer weather.

The warm weather is forecast to continue next week.
