On the eve of midsummer on Friday, mercury rises above 25 degrees Celsius in many places. According to the Meteorological Bureau Foreca, depending on the location, even 32 degrees may be possible.
Finland’s definition of heat is 25.1 degrees Celsius.
Even on Saturday’s midsummer days, fine weather will be the mainstream. Temperatures of 25 to 30 degrees can occur in most places.
Then, on Sunday’s recovery day, it will be even warmer nationwide. It can be between 30 and 33 degrees.
