Record-breaking warm temperatures could be measured on Monday evening, or, perhaps, on Friday. Or perhaps on both days? These are the questions surrounding this week’s forecast. Anyway, the previous warm-temperature record in November is 14.3 degrees Celsius.
A stormy low pressure is bringing warm weather to Finland and on Monday evening and Tuesday night hard winds are expected to roam at sea areas and also inland where the storm could cause damages in various places.
In southwestern parts and at Åland Islands the nighttime temperatures could exceed 14 degrees, possibly breaking the previous record in Kemiönsaari on November 3, 2015.
The nighttime temperatures in southern and central parts are likely to stay around 10 degrees, and the remaining snow in central and northern Lapland is likely to melt significantly.
But what about the daytime weather?
On Monday, it’s going to rain in many parts; between 5 to 15 millimeters of rain is expected. In Lapland, the amount of rain could be as much as 20 to 50 millimeters and some snow and sleet could be expected. Hard rains are expected in the eastern parts in the evening.
The daytime temperatures are largely at 10 degrees Celsius and the temperatures are going to stay above 0 even in Lapland.
On Tuesday, the winds are going to move to the east and become weaker. The weather is likely to be clear in many parts, and the daytime temperatures are going to stay around 10 degrees in the southern parts and around 5 to 10 degrees in the central parts and around 1 to 6 degrees in Lapland.
Cloudy weather is expected on Wednesday. The weather is going to be mild in most parts, except for freezing temperatures in Lapland.
On Thursday the wind is going to become hard. Snow and rain are expected in the western parts but the mild weather continues.
On Friday, there’s another chance to break the previous warm-temperature record in November.
This time temperatures of over 14 degrees could be measured in southern Finland.
