It obviously depends on your notion of "cold", but I wouldn't recommend 
buying anything before we know there'll be a proper winter or not. It's 
currently a rainy +6 °C here and at least the last two winters in 
Helsinki have been so mild the "winter" has just been a very dark 
extension of autumn that abruptly turns into spring once or twice in the 
midst of winter. I do hope we get some snow though, as it reflects the 
little sunlight we get in wintertime, lighting things up a bit.

I can assure you it's highly improbable you'll be facing -20 °C here. On 
the other hand you will face heavy darkness - right now the sun rises at 
09:01 and sets at 15:19.

Though, perhaps I am underestimating your reaction to cold - we Finns 
are indeed known for walking around in T-shirts when southerners start 
to wear jackets ;)
