Climate in Finland           

The Finnish climate is cold temperate. Finland lies on the border between the maritime and continental climate zones. The low pressure areas of the westerly wind zone can bring humid and changeable weather conditions. On the other hand, the Scandinavian Mountains shield Finland from the Atlantic, so that stable continental high pressure zones ensure cold winters and comparatively hot summers. The Baltic Sea, the inland lakes and especially the Gulf Stream, through their moderating influence, make the climate in Finland much milder than in other places at the same latitudes.

The total precipitation in southern Finland is 600-700 mm. In the north it is much lower, but this is compensated by the low evaporation due to the cool temperatures. The least precipitation falls in the whole country in March, mostly in July or August.

Origin of the country’s name    

The Finnish name of this state comes from suo ("swamp") and maa ("land").

The name Finland probably originated from the Germanic word finn or finne as a collective term for Sami (Lapps) and Finns.
