Warm weekend forecast for Sweden
12:40 CEST+02:00
This weekend will provide Swedes with a glimpse of summer with sunny weather and warm temperatures in many parts of the country, according to Sweden's meteorological agency (SMHI).

Southern areas of Sweden are on Friday already enjoying sunny warm weather as the spring starts to give a clear indication that summer is indeed, just around the corner.

By Sunday the whole of Sweden is forecast to be sharing in the fine weather with temperatures set to climb above 20 degrees Celsius.

The warm weather has been brought on by a high pressure front that has pushed up from the European continent and set in over the Scandinavian peninsula for the time being.

SMHI reports that the front will push north, away from Sweden, come Sunday and leave behind a mix of cloudy weather with some scattered sunshine, mostly in southern and central areas.

The advance of warm weather raises the risk of grass fires in southern and western areas, SMHI informed.

Furthermore the agency warns that the ozone layer over Sweden is unusually thin this year and sunbathers are urged to liberally apply sun protection cream before going out to frolic in the balmy weather.
