Was it sunny at midsummer? Was there snow at Christmas? You will find the answers in the online service

The easy and simple Download Observations service enables you to search for observation data at any time and free of charge from the archives of the Finnish Meteorological Institute. You can download the data and use it freely for your own purposes.

The Download Observations service of the Finnish Meteorological Institute (FMI) has been renewed and is now even more versatile, easier to use and more accessible. Anyone using the online service can search for weather, radiation, marine and air quality observations in the Download Observations service. The data are easy to download, for example, to your own spreadsheet programme. No programming skills are required. The service utilises the FMI’s open data.

New in the Download Observations service

  • All weather observations opened in the FMI’s open data can be found through the service. The data includes observations dating back as far as to 1844.

  • Observations are offered only from those stations from which the observations concerned are available.

  • In addition to UTC, the observations can also be downloaded in Finnish time.

  • In addition to instantaneous, daily and monthly observations, hourly observations are now also available.

  • Instantaneous weather and radiation observations can be grouped, which means that results such as maximum wind gusts or sums of radiation measurements can be obtained directly.

  • The entire service has now also been made available also in Swedish.

  • A large number of improvements have been made to accessibility.
