Thickness of snow cover (cm) 26.10.2017 at 09.00 clock EEST

By the way, exactly one year ago snow fell only in South Estonia.

From early night the northerly wind will again increase up to 15 m/s and the wave height in open sea will be about one and a half metres. We will see if the snow that has fallen will mostly have thawed until Saturday noon…
