Hot days in May

I took these pictures last Saturday in Lestijärvi, Central Finland during the last day of the hot spell. We had hot weather almost everywhere Finland. These May temperatures were close to 30°C (85° F). That was exceptional.

Now, a couple of days later, the temperature has dropped 20° C (35° F) below 10° C in one night, after some local heavy thunderstorms. It’s almost like during Autumn.

I’m afraid we need to get used to this. Looks like we are going see these record-breaking weather phenomena and rapid changes more and more frequently.

Thanks to us.
