Chillier weather will dominate to the end of July. Picture: Tony Öhberg for Finland Today

The recent four-week forecast of the European Centre for Medium-Range Weather Forecasts (ECMWF) predicts that the weather will continue chillier than usual because the weather in northern Europe is dominated with low pressure.

In layman’s terms: long periods of hot weather are unlikely in July.

And another way of saying this, according to the Finnish Meteorological Institute, is that the heat masses of air are flowing about 1,000 kilometres away.

For the next two weeks the temperature rises to about 20C. In the middle of the country, the temperature is about 15C and in the north 10C.


But here’s the good news: a longer forecast of ECMWF ranging from August to October predicts that Western Finland will be dominated with high pressure, which is likely to cause common warm temperatures in the end of the summer and early autumn.

This means that in August the temperature is likely to range from 25-30 degrees of Celsius.
