Picture: Tony Öhberg for Finland Today

“Have you seen the sun?”

Lately, that’s been the question around town in the Finnish capital of Helsinki.

A view out from the window on Tuesday morning does not give any answers. It could be anywhere behind the thick grey mass of rain clouds.

Meteorologist Aleksi Jokela turns out to be wiser. According to Jokela, we could see glimpses of the sun already on Thursday.

But on Sunday . . . on Sunday . . . according to Jokela and the forecast, the sun will make an appearance across the nation.

Colder nights will follow the sun, so perhaps, we are also taking a few steps closer to the winter.
