    Lapland weather May

    What’s the weather like in Lapland in May?

    Lapland weather in May warms up from last month with higher temperatures and lots of bright sunshine each day. The snow begins to melt and there’s not much chance of a snowy day this month, so you’ll enjoy warmer weather both day and night.

    Geographical influences

    Its location in the north of Finland means Lapland borders Norway and Sweden. It’s characterised by its vast wilderness, which is usually covered in a thick blanket of snow. In spring, things begin to warm up and the subarctic climate isn’t as cold as the winter. The Atlantic Ocean and Gulf Stream have a warming effect on the surrounding temperatures and humidity in Lapland. This helps to keep the spring months mild with comfortable weather and low humidity compared to the winter.

    Averages

    Temperatures in May are around 10°C with chilly lows of 4°C. You’ll need to pack warm clothing and a waterproof jacket to battle both the cold and wet weather. You can expect a monthly rainfall average of 40mm, which means there’s a 49% chance of rain. Lapland enjoys 14 hours of sunlight each day with 81% humidity. Winds travel at 7mph and you’ll begin to notice warmer temperatures arriving towards the end of the month.
