Climate and weather in Finland

 

"Four seasons - four reasons"

 

The summer climate in Finland is more rainy than in the Mediterranean region but less rainy than in Central Europe.

 

Numbers in Finnish weather forecasts are degrees Celsius. Multiply by 1.8 and add 32 to obtain degrees Fahrenheit. For example, the temperature in Northern Lapland was 30.0 degrees Celsius on July 10th, 2005. The temperature 30.0 degrees Celsius is 30.0 x 1.8 + 32 = 86.0 degrees Fahrenheit.
