Helsinki has a humid continental climate (Koppen: Dfb). Owing to the mitigating influence of the Baltic Sea and Gulf Stream, temperatures in winter are higher than the northern location might suggest, with the average in January and February around −5 °C (23 °F).[24] Temperatures below −20 °C (−4 °F) occur normally a week or two in a year.
