Summer sun set to hit Sweden
13:36 CEST+02:00
Sweden is set for a welcome spell of hot weather as holiday season kicks in for many over the Midsummer weekend.

Scattered showers and thundery spells in eastern parts on Saturday are expected to give way to finer conditions across the country on Sunday as a high pressure belt draws in over southern Sweden. Meteorological agency SMHI forecasts temperatures to hit the mid-20s early in the week.

“The warm air will carry on up to Götaland and Svealand and in over southern Norrland on Monday. Temperatures will rise to 25 degrees Celsius in many parts,” said Arne Hagmarker in a forecast published on SMHI's website.

Patches of cloud cover will affect much of the country on Tuesday, although the weather will remain warm. Southern Norrland may experience occasional rain showers.

SMHI expects temperatures to drop slightly on Wednesday, with scattered showers and cloud cover across much of the country. But the balmy weather is forecast to make a brisk return before the weekend.

“The end of the week will be sunny and warm for most of the country,” said Hagmarker.
