Sweden set to sizzle into July

Sweden set to sizzle into July

Meteorological agency SMHI expects dry and sunny weather across the country this week.

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.

Rise in temperature......hmmmm.... NOT A GOOD OMEN.

Haha! The forecasts here crack me up........they go city by city in the south, street by street in Stockholm, then summarise the whole of Västerbotten and Norbotten in one or two words. Don't they realise how BIG Norrland is?!?!

They must not care about me up here in Norbotten...sad...just sad...

"Sweden has well and truly shaken off the ... with the current warm spell set to stretch into the first days of July."



So that's until Thursday then?

Thunderstorm and piddling with rain at present in Smålands Högland!

I know. Whoever heard of the temperature rising in the month of July? The gods must not be pleased.

All I know is, after two extremely disappointing Swedish summers, it's about damn time.

Great news......burn baby burn. This should take care of a few of the oldies, saves on cremation costs. Farmers going bust because its so dry, people dying because there is no water to drink.....God I love it....justice at last.

So this is your 3rd summer here?

You are better off lowering your expectations and then you will not be disappointed
18:08 June 30, 2009 by Miss Kitten
Actually it's my fourth summer here. I recall the summer of '06 was pretty good. The summers of '07 and '08 were disappointing, in my opinion.

holly shoot!

i'm telling you guys that i can not take any more heat,somebody stop this crazy sun ! i became almost unconscious today, and the problem is as i drink more water it gets worse, so someone stop this sun, please!

I haven't seen a real summer where I live since 1997-1998. Since then the local "summer" has at best been for me a warm spring

I miss the Summer evenings when you can go swimming at 10pm and it is still 30 or walk out (or be carried) of the pub at midnight and it is still 25 degrees.

Here even on the hottest day it is difficult to do little more than dip my toes into the water as the water is so cold (17 yesterday).
15:18 July 1, 2009 by Benzed
The sun finally graces us with a heat approaching that of normal, Christian countries and still people moan.

I for one am loving it, and sorely wish I was on holiday and not in the office.

I was out wakeboarding with friends until 2300 last night and the only thing that prevented from continuing was our shameful fitness.

I can't understand why people complain about good weather.
