Wow, this is very helpful. Thank you so much
It seems it won’t be snowing in Helsinki for approx next 10 days, after that it might. In general there is a chance of snow in Helsinki every year from october till april. Rovaniemi probably has snow already and it will probably last the whole winter.

First snow usually comes to Rovaniemi during October but the Lasting Snow comes during November. Most likely Rovaniemi will have snow from December to March.

To Helsinki the lasting snow usually comes in the end of January and lasts to March.

But these, of course, are not exact dates and don't necessarily come true every year.

Depends on the yes. Helsinki doesnt get as much coverage of Snow as Rovaniemi. For Rovaniemi the snow might show up for the Halloween or later. For Helsinki it might come and go but coverage might come before the Christmas( thats a lucky year there). As climate change the snow cover has been laten for months, and now we dont even know if we have a full white Christmas. Day are short, about 2-3 hours of light during the day in Rovaniemi. Few hours longer in Helsinki.
