Water situation 11.6.

Water levels in lakes are high in central and eastern parts of Finland

The weather will continue to be unstable and rainy in large parts of the country. Rainfall will mainly occur in showers, although more extensive rain bodies may occur. In water systems, the impact of local rainfall on water levels is likely to remain minor, but heavier rainfall may raise the water levels in small channels or at the headwaters of rivers.

The water levels in many lakes are still high in the central and eastern parts of the country, from Lakes Saimaa and Päijänne all the way to Kainuu and Koillismaa. However, the surfaces have already started to decline, which may be slowed down by local rainfall. The water level of Lake Saimaa is more than half a metre above the average level and is forecast to remain above the target level until the end of June.
