It's gotten really cold up there now. Lycksele saw a -22°C high today or thereabouts, while coastal non-Lapland towns were around -15°C. Needless to say the snow there reliably lasts for more than three months, unlike here south of Stockholm, when it hardly takes hold all winter long.

It doesn't look like it's melting in Kiruna anytime soon, however. Usually cold waves in Northern Sweden are very momentum-based and last quite long. December is also cold enough for low-pressure systems to very rarely bring anything other than snow too.

This was another update from last Friday. A friend was in Inari-Saariselkä  

There was enough snow, for the activities. Weekend forecast just looks dry and cold

Finnish Met service, so most of northern half of Finland in 10-25cm cover
