Winter meekly arrives in Helsinki

On Saturday, it snowed most of the day. Although it didn't stick, Sunday morning we awoke to frost on the shaded parts of the rooftops. Sunday's high temperatures around Helsinki were hovering just below freezing, making this the coldest day of the season so far. On a trip out and about Helsinki Sunday afternoon, Yvette needed some new leather gloves and knit cap (pipo) to keep warm. Cars were coming to Helsinki with an inch or two of snow on them (presumably from farther north). The news at night showed people skiing somewhere in Finland. Finally, this morning (Monday), you could find patches of ice on the streets and patches of light snow in the shaded grassy areas.

Hi. Found your page in the Virtual Finland-website. Could you please explain what is a program in synoptic and mesoscale meteorology in Finland? What does it do?
