Nuuksio Now: Week 34, 2018

Nuuksio National Park during week 34, between 20.-26.8.2018.

Nights are getting dark and longer, but the days are pretty and the air feels refreshing after the hot summer. Some leaves are changing colour and dropping already because of the dry summer. You should eat all the blueberries you can find while we still have them, and try the first lingonberries to see if they are ripe.

There might be rain on some days or nights, hopefully that brings out the mushrooms! Otherwise it’s going to be lovely late summer’s days with some white clouds in the sky.


Temperatures: Days from +18°C to +22°C; nights from +10°C to +15°C
Rain: Maybe on monday
