Early Snowfall In Lapland

The first snowfall of the season was seen late Wednesday night near Enontekiö in Finnish Lapland.

Snow continued to fall heavily through the morning hours as well. By mid-morning some localities were reporting around five centimetres of snowcover.

Kiruna in northern Sweden was also reported to have had snowfall.

According to listeners to YLE's Lapland regional radio service, early snow was also seen in 1986 when the ground was cloaked in white on the last day of August.
