There is a huge swing in March temps. It was just in 2013 when we had subfreezing highs in March. 2005 and 2006 were also particularly miserable.

There it is:


You should've been on the forum then. I was so pissed off.

I was also pissed off. I lived in Örebro obviously at the time, and it was just as bad in our interior. Piles of snow everywhere as we hit the equinox if I remember correctly. The winter of 12-13 was a strange cookie as you'll remember. We had four months either below -3C or approaching that in means, yet still periods without snow cover in the midst of all that cold.

March 2013 in Sweden! (you know Swedish so you'll be fine)

I'm amazed that Örebro actually had a 2.6C avg high that month, especially given the freakozoid -8.5 avg low Well, as soon as the sun set temps nosedived quickly as hell.

What is it with Turku not going above 6C in January as of late by the way? I guess the sun angle is a bit lower, but still coastal and still south-westerlies should be able to travel over the sea. Is Åland and the archipelago too much in the way to even enable solitary mild days? Here it happens every single year except 2010 and exceptions like that because of unimpeded westerlies from the British Isles travelling over lowland areas.

The sun angle doesn't make any difference.

Turku isn't really that maritime. It's behind an archipelago which is at least partially frozen. The warm air has to travel through the cold soil of Sweden and across the freezing Baltic Sea, while Finland is also much more prone to cold influences from Russia.

Yep there really seems like a bit of a barrier depending on which side of the Baltic Sea it is. Here it gets above 20C in April every other year and it's not strange with a 23C day at all...

So would we but that would require more SE influences. But also note that the Artukainen station is closer to the water than the old airport station.

Well, it just adds to how little your 5.9'C January record seems. Turku is quite a bit warmer than Umeå, isn't it?

Yes, but you are quite a bit closer to föhn winds.

I remember a -10c low in Lyon on March 1st, 2005, and more snow a few days later. By the end of the month we had several days with highs above 20c. Most interesting March I've ever lived. 2004/2005 was probably my favorite winter.

But yeah, -10c at our tropical 45N, must have meant a really friggin' cold blast up north.
