Sweden's weather agency has warned that a mighty snowfall is on the way for Sweden, with up to 30 centimetres expected on Tuesday alone.
Meteorologists at weather agency SMHI said that northern Sweden could expect heavy snowfall on Tuesday and temperatures as low at -20C.
The snow will hit Ångermanland, Härjedalen, Jämtland and Västerbotten as a low pressure system heads north. 
SMHI said that there will likely be traffic disruptions. 
It issued a class-two warning, the second most severe on its three scale warning system. 
Those in the capital won't escape the wild weather either - snow is expected to hit Stockholm and other parts of southern Sweden late on Wednesday night, reported the Svenska Dagbladet newspaper.
