Temperatures are set to drop across Sweden this week, with the first snow of the season expected to fall in many parts of the country.

Swedish weather agency SMHI warned that around five millimetres of snow was expected to fall along the coast north of Uppsala, particularly in the Hälsingland region, on Wednesday morning.

That was after warning of snowy weather overnight in Värmland, Dalarna and Gävleborg.

More snow is expected to fall on Wednesday evening in west-central and northern Sweden.

“We're also talking rain in the south and snowfall from western Svealand and further north,” SMHI meteorologist Therese Gadd told Swedish news agency TT late on Tuesday.

Temperatures are set to drop across Sweden at the end of the week, and even southern parts of the country, which have so far had a fairly mild November, can expect the first cold snap of the season.

“On Friday southern Sweden could get snow and wet snow,” said Gadd.
