"Lapland, the most northerly part of Finland known for its deep winters, has
recorded its hottest temperature in more than 100 years.
It reached 33.6 degrees celsius (or 92.5 Fahrenheit) at a weather station at
Kevo near the border with Norway on Sunday. That’s the highest temperature
recorded in Lapland, which lies within the Arctic Circle, since 1914, when it
reached 34.7 degrees celsius.
Nordic countries are experiencing an intense heatwave, with new records set in
both Norway and Sweden. In Banak in Norway, it reached 34.3 degrees celsius.
It’s difficult to tie individual weather patterns to the climate crisis, but
scientists say extreme weather events are increasing in number and intensity
due to global warming."
