While the snow may be reserved for the Arctic north, the remainder of the country can look forward to decidedly autumnal weather in the coming days, according to the SMHI forecast.
"It will be a little cooler and more unstable weather. On Sunday, we will get a rain front that will pull across the country so it can feel quite autumnal," Rahn said.
Temperatures are expected to be between 15 and 20C in the north of Sweden and around the 20C in Svealand and Götaland in central areas.
If you are feeling a little melancholy at the impending march of winter, spare a thought for those at the Tarfala mountain station who have been enjoying the autumn for over a week already.
