Is common having snow in Tallin in October? Even in the Alps is extremely rare, except 2000+ meters.

It's not common but it does happen from time to time. This snow probably won't last more than a week or so. The weather changed quite quickly, though. Just a few days ago it was a nice sunny autumn weather

Also in the Netherlands. Earlier this week it was 22 - 24 C and now it's 1 C with chances for some wet snow.

I'm not going to Istanbul by bus; not enough people applied. So I'm going by plane.

Turku in the soutwestern Finland today:



It is quite common to have some snow or ice in October. The permanent snow arrives later, typically in December or early January.

What's wrong in this pic? The STOP sign before the pedestrian\bicycle crossing?

Yesterday we had 145 road accidents due to first snow, which is about half the more than on other days.
