Heavy snowfall is expected throughout Sweden today and on Friday, and a Class 1 weather warning, the lowest on a three-grade scale, has now been issued for large parts of the country by SMHI, the Swedish Meteorological Institute.

A Class 1 warning indicates weather that may present certain risks to the public, with some disruption.

Southern Sweden is expected to receive around a decimeter of snow, and in central parts of the country, as much as 15 centimeters of snow may fall today.

SMHI also warns that all areas north of Jämtland, a region in the north of Sweden will be hit by strong winds, with rain and drifting snow.

The meteorological institute has issued a Class 2 weather warning, indicating possible danger to the public, for the region of Västernorrland, in the north of Sweden, where heavy snowfall is expected to cause snow drifts.
