Nuuksio Now: Week 38, 2018

Nuuksio National Park during week 38, between 17.-23.9.2018.

At this time of year we get proper fall weather on some days, and on others we still get a taste of the summer gone by. This week starts with rain and cool weather on monday, but then in the middle of the week we are going to have possibly the last lovely warm days of this year, with the temperatures rising to +20°C or over.

There’s lots of mushrooms now to be found and lingonberries to get a perky taste of colder days still ahead.

September equinox, when the length of day and night are the same, is on sunday. After sunday the nights start to get longer and we’re on our way towards winter.
