Yup another massive storm coming up this weekend. Pretty unusual for Northern Europe... Not to mention Russia's wildfires and massive smog over Moscow. Weather people says that some pretty massive storms and hurricanes awaits Europe part of Russia. And massive flood in China... Damn.

Like yo usaid, weather like this is unusual to us in these parts, and coupled with what is happening in Russia and the Floods in Pakistan etc. it is easy to come to the conclusion that something isn't right at the moment.

Thinking of it, has there been any threads about the flooding in Pakistan? I havn't seen any, I mean we are looking at an area the size of England flooded, 15Million affected, 900 Deaths a day in Moscow. This is crazy, Roland Emmerich has just got his script for the next blockbuster, '2012... But Today'.

Exactly! I mean, whatever happened to our afternoon showers I remember from when I was a little younger?? I thought this year was finally supposed to be that way, but I guess not. Ilive in northern FL and it's been just hot & muggy....

Well certainly this video is not fake. I can confirm that weather in Finland has been unusual this year, winter included.

Also there has been an serious storm in Pori, Finland. Helicopters and airplanes got damaged (Iggy and the stooges private jet also got damaged)

People got injured because a "t-shirt shop" in Sonisphere concert got lifted in the air and landed straight to the concert crowd. Serious business!

We have had also some record setting thunderstorms and such in western Finland.

I'm telling you, this really is an unusual year! This is my first post, so i won't get started with chemtrailing activity in finland


hah!

Regards.

Ye Gods...that looks so metal!


I've seen a front like that once before (in real life).
It is absolutely amazaing. Spellbinding even.
I should see if I have some pictures to upload (yeah, just like the people in the video I didn't run, I just started taking pictures until my girlfriend pulled me back into the car, lol).

Hey Porilaine, would you be able to find more info on that Asta storm? I live in Finland also, Tampere for that matter, and when I saw the footage and pics on tv I was in awe for a few minutes. The other day I got caught in one of those near Teisko and it was quite scary. The weird thing about the Asta storm was how fast and how destructive it was in such a small frame of time. Also the way it knocked down trees in a sort of a "trail" way making it look someone just came and cleared a path through the woods, don't know if you get what I'm saying...

Anyways, since I don't speak finnish I was thinking that you could find the right info on it much faster than I. Thanks in advance!

Regards

Classic gust front there

Used to see this almost every day when I lived in the tropics. Unusual for Finland though. Most probably caused by convection and unsettled mid level layers leading to a pretty significant thunderstorm cell

Nice video really shows how quickly these can move in

I have seen storms come in like that in Indiana over my lifetime. The cloud front is low and fast. The only thing you have to worry about is microburst, and straight line winds. The fast moving front is riding on a thin surface layer of air. If the boundary becomes turbulent, then the high speed moving air will dip down to ground level and rips thing to heck.

It is scary to be setting there, working in the building, with a light rain falling. No wind at all, just a gentle rain. There is some fast moving low level clouds above, but you don’t think anything about it……….. Then………

You feel a slight breeze…….. You start to hear leaves rustle……… A sound starts coming down the valley sounding like a distant jet engine coming up to power. You don’t even have time to get into the building and hide. All you can do is duck and take cover under what ever is around you. About that time all the trees around you start lying over like they are in a hurricane and the sound is deafening, you can’t hear yourself scream. You hear sounds of trees snapping, and see parts of trees fly through the air. In a few more seconds, the wind dies down as fast as it came up, and everything just goes quiet….. You can see the tattered leaves and branches falling to the ground. All it’s left for you to do is get clean up the mess.


I was in one of those once in Iowa. Beautiful day turned bad in ten minutes. When we came out of the basement 2 of the 3 steel radio towers nearby had fallen and 60% of the trees in the city had been felled. Tornado? No, straight line winds of approximately 160 MPH if I remember correctly. It even partially derailed a train over a river bridge. . surreal. .

Sure, here is something: (but i'm not sure if i am doing this correctly)

SOME PICTURES FROM LOCALS IN PORI (not Asta)

This was in Kankaanpää


Because of the storms Asta and Veera there are still about 4500 households without electricity.

Interesting why it's so low, I am not a weather expert but I am assuming there is some abnormal pressure involved causing the storm to develop so low to the ground?


That's the thing I noticed too. The fast speed is probably alot because it was so low. When I looked up I really felt that the clouds were at tree level.
Anyone have any idea what causes this? Some pressure pushes the storm down or something?

The reason its appears its moving so fast is due to the outflow boundary, or gust front, where you get cooler wind rapidly falling and flowing out and away from the thunderstorm. This give the appearance of a roll cloud, or shelf cloud. The pressure doesnt actually drop in these situations, it actually jumps quickly.

The temperature drops extremely quickly and the wind direction and speed changes dramatically also.

Thank you 2 everyone for posting and enjoying the thread.

Also thanks OzWeatherman for sharing your intellect, and the Applause.

I also noticed that once the storm reached the beachfront, the clouds began to dissipate. Is that due to the moisture as it got closer to water?

Thanks for the links, just had one question.

In the blog (2nd link) is that the image of the storm above the article?? Just wondering since there's an obvious square in the center.

Another Finn reporting in.
For those who doubted the video: The site "HS.fi" Is the website of "Helsingin Sanomat" (Newspaper of Helsinki) so, that should give it some credibility, if nothing else: At least that it's not a movie trailer, LOL!
Anyway, it was real. There has been some very strange weather stuff occuring in here. (as said by other finnish members in this thread too)
I hope that the crazy weather dont go everywhere! Could cause some serious troubles..
Someone who asked why the beach was so empty: Finland has a population of 5,2 million or something like that, so, it's not that hard to catch a beach with some space on it

Don't see this sort of thing all that often, but I had my camera with me for this one, many years back (back in the dinosaur days of film, and no video capable phones...).

The original is in colour, but I like it in b&w.

The storm itself wasn't all that special, just a lot of rain and a bit of lightning and thunder - almost a disappointment after seeing what it looked like as it rolled in.
