While snow is common in Sweden in winter, national weather agency SMHI only issues warnings when there is a chance that it could cause dangerous conditions.
“It will snow for a long time and it will be a continuous snowfall. Most snow will fall on the day [Wednesday] and slow down tomorrow,” Sandra Andersson, a meteorologist at SMHI told the TT news agency.
