Finland's state-owned railway company VR has asked customers planning to use long-distance or commuter trains on Monday, 4 February to be prepared for delays or cancellations due to weather conditions.

The railway company reports that all commuter D-trains will be cancelled on Monday. A-trains will be running within every 20 minutes between 6am and 9am, and K-trains will be running every 20 minutes between 6am and 2pm. The R-train to Riihimäki that departs from Helsinki at 3:51pm will also be cancelled.

VR warns in the bulletin that other long-distance trains might also be cancelled, so it advises customers to check their website for more information before setting out.

The VR website lists at least ten long-distance trains had been delayed for longer periods on Sunday, after southern and central parts of Finland received up to 16 centimetres of new snow.
