Sweden's weather forecaster has issued a snow warning for Stockholm and Uppsala, with the regions around the two cities expected to get between 5 and 15 centimetres of snowfall on Monday.

“Above all, it's in Uppland where we expect the largest amounts to come,” Petter Lind, a meteorologist with SMHI, told the TT newswire about the region that's home to the university town of Uppsala.

Between 5 and 15 centimetres of snow is forecast for the coast region north of Uppsala, while around Stockholm, there will be around 5 centimetres snow, with SMHI saying it was “uncertain how much would stay on the ground”.

With temperatures expected to hover up and down around freezing point throughout the day, the snowfall is expected to lead to icy roads, accidents and traffic problems.

SMHI also expects about 10 centimetres of snow on the Roslagen coast north of Stockholm, and about 5 centimetres of snow on the island of Gotland.

“The temperature won't change that much over the day, but might creep up a bit around the coast. It's going to be pretty close to zero, but in the evening it might drop and get colder,” Lind said.

Unlike earlier this month ago, when heavy blizzards left much of Sweden covered with deep snow, the snowfall is expected to end after one day, with sunshine expected on Tuesday.
