Bring on the snow: are you ready for winter?

Mild temperatures and a lack of snow have delayed the start of winter in many parts of Sweden, prompting some to rejoice and others to grumble. The Local invites you to have your say about the (lack of?) winter weather.


As a country that juts up into the Arctic Circle, Sweden has plenty to offer when it comes to wild and woolly winter weather.

However, temperatures in recent weeks have remained relatively warm throughout much of the country, in stark contrast to last winter when a massive snowstorm walloped Sweden in early November.

Forecasters' recent warnings about the season's first serious snowstorm have kicked off yet another round of frenzied chatter about snow tyres, sturdy boots, and skiing.

Whether skies are clear or cloudy; temperatures balmy or bone-chilling; and ski slopes barren or buried, one thing is certain, Swedes never seem to tire of talking about the weather.
