More heavy rain is on its way to south west Sweden, according to the Swedish Meteorological and Hydrological Office (SMHI). Low-lying areas are especially at risk and SMHI has issued a weather warning for Blekinge and eastern parts of Skåne .

The category of warning indicates a possibility of flooding in drains and cellars. Up to 40 millimetres of rain is expected locally.

"It's a low pressure system coming in from Poland," explained Eva Brokhöj, meteorologist at SMHI.

"During the evening it will come in over Öland and it will reach Skåne and Blekinge around midnight."

A category two warning is still in place for parts of the Jönköping and Kalmar regions. River levels are extremely high and further bad weather could put the public in danger and cause major damage, according to the warning.
