Snow depths in Finland

I wanted to know how the snow depth in Finland has changed over the last 12 years. I downloaded the snow depth data from the Finnish Meteorological Institute open data download service and visualized the data. My idea was make this kind of "joy plot" -type of visualization to make comparison between different years easier. Here are the figures I made (from South to North):

snowdepth_Helsinki

snowdepth_Turku

snowdepth_Lahti

snowdepth_Seinajoki

snowdepth_Kuopio

snowdepth_Rovaniemi

snowdepth_Kittila

If you are interested to create similar visualization, I shared and example code here: https://gist.github.com/anttilipp/3cd2970c86c811a424877a8485a7e767
