The beginning of the year brought frost to northern Finland. The temperature dropped below -30 degrees in some places. Such weather allowed a Finn to perform an experiment popular on social media.
Frosty weather hit the Scandinavian Peninsula. On Thursday in northern Finland, thermometers showed -42.7 degrees Celsius.
Residents of a country with icy winters have space to perform all sorts of experiments. One of them is pouring boiling water in the open air. How, under the right conditions, boiling water instantly freezes and turns into icy “smoke” can be seen in a video taken on January 1 by Lauri Untamo on Mount Pyhatunturi in Lapland.

“I’ve seen videos of this experiment on social media, but the temperature was always too high for me to do it myself,” Untamo told Reuters news agency.
The temperature on Pyhatunturi, a mountain located in the Kemijärvi commune in Lapland, dropped to -32 degrees Celsius on January 1. For the boiling water to turn into a spectacular cloud, thermometers should show less than -25 degrees.
