In what is shaping up as another hot day, and quite possibly the hottest so far in this heat wave, northern Finland has already hit 32.7 °C (in Kevo at 70°N)! A number of other stations in northern Finland, northern Sweden and northern Norway have surpassed 30 °C already. Also note that temperatures have already reached up to 30-31 °C along the Atlantic coast of central Norway!
