Coldest December in Sweden in 110 years
10:30 CET+01:00
The last few days of the year look to be very cold throughout Sweden, according to a forecast by the Swedish meteorological agency SMHI.

This means that several parts of Sweden, including the southern region Götaland and eastern Svealand, will have experienced the coldest December in at least 110 years.

Considering the freezing Christmas month, SMHI write on their website that it “maybe isn't that strange that we've had a bit of traffic problems”, referring to the past few days of chaos on Swedish roads and rails, caused by heavy snowfall and bitter cold.

Tuesday and Wednesday will be cold throughout the country, but during the last two days of the year milder air will begin coming in.
