Water levels low in Southern and Southwest Finland
In Southern and Southwest Finland, water levels are lower than usual, due to low precipitation in late spring. The driest is Southwest Finland, where the situation in many places is similar to the turn of May and June in the dry summer of 2018. No heavy precipitation is forecast for the next few days either, meaning that the water levels will continue to fall in many places.
