    This year has seen an exceptionally long heatwave, with temperatures of more than 25°C being recorded by at least one weather station every day since 6th June. The adverse health effects of the hot weather are not yet known, but those most at risk are the chronically ill and elderly people living either at home or in some form of residential care unit.

    Similar to 1973

     

    As mentioned in the article. Astute of you to notice that.

     

     

    Finland has only once before experienced a similar heatwave since records began in 1961. The heatwave in the summer of 1973 also lasted for 38 days. This year, the ground temperature reached at least 30°C on a total of 22 days. This is the most frequent since 1961.
