When are you going?

Snow fall is forecast for Sunday:

Most likely it will also happen - it is currently snowing here in Oulu and the snow flurries are spreading towards north.

19th of December? Lack of snow in Lapland by then is stupendously improbable.

Hi Archiebear567, i am travelling to Rovaniemi on the 19th too :o)

and i have to say that i LOVE that reply from JohntheFinn!

I wasn't at all concerned about a lack of snow until i checked this forum, but now i shall probably be checking out the weather sites every few days!

Have a safe journey and a great trip!

We are also going, 16th of December.

I have been watching the webcams - there was plenty of snow 3w ago, then it rained for days and all washed away, but it has been snowing again.

The webcams in town show a light snow layer, also at Santa Village, and you can see snow on the slopes at Ounasvaara. Despite being from a completely different climate, it looks to me like it isn't going to get warmer than -8 degrees, so any precipitation should be snow rather than rain. The eternal optimist!
