You're correct, they have more t-storms and tornadoes than Turku. The record cold readings are all from January 1987, so understandibly they don't vary much. Remember also that those figures I've put into wikipedia for Turku are all-time records (since 1908), while these in this thread are only since 1981.

Utti ties second in consecutive >25C days (21), >30C days (6) and leads in summer >25C days (48) since 1961.

Hmmm I am surprised with this climate. 300 hours of sun so north is ok!!! I will give it a B-. I would prefer a little sunnier summers and warmer and a bit more precipitation in some months. But it is ok for Finland in my opinion. Ariete may I ask you something? I read somewhere that the city of Vaasa in Finland is a sunny city. But I can 't find a climate box for this city. How can I see the data?

That's propaganda. There's no FMI data that proves that Vaasa would be the sunniest city in Finland, though it is sometimes called that. The FMI doesn't even record sunshine in Vaasa anymore, but my guess would be that they recieve around 100 hours less than we do, so if I say 1750 hours annually, that's probably quite close.

I don't have the averages from this city either, sorry.

Ok thank you very much for the information and for the truth. I was just curious. :P So this city Mariehamn and Uto are sunny for your standards.

Utö is on average the sunniest place where sunshine is recorded. 1990 hours of sun is a very high number north of the Alps. For example Brussels and Cologne get 1500 hours.

Of course it is very impressive for North Europe if you consider other places around it! I would live happy there.

I prefer continental Finland. Warmer springs and summers. Better winters too.

The Åland Islands are extremely beautiful though.

Turku gets 1850 hours of sun, so you won't notice a difference.
