Temperatures on Monday will be in the range of 25 to 30 degrees celcius, although a bit cooler along the coasts and in Norrland in northern Sweden. The high temperatures are expected to continue on Tuesday and throughout the rest of the week.
"In the south, temperatures will be between 25 and 30 and in the north, 25 degrees at least until the weekend, and then we'll see what happens," said Johan Lundgren of SMHI.
A high pressure front over Scandinavia will ensure the much-longed for warm streak continues. With the exception of light showers in Härjedalen in northern Sweden and overcast skies in southern Götaland, the warm weather is expected to continue.
A cold front building up in northern Norrland may lead to blustery weather in some parts of the country by the middle of the week.
