Sweden's Summer on Hold: Yo-Yo Weather Persists

Published: 2024-07-08

Sweden is experiencing unpredictable 'yo-yo' weather, with high summer temperatures delayed.

The Swedish Meteorological and Hydrological Institute (SMHI) reports that unstable conditions, including strong winds and rain showers, have swept across the country.

While a brief respite is expected early next week, with temperatures potentially reaching 20°C (68°F) on Tuesday, the reprieve will be short-lived.

Wednesday will bring more rain, particularly in western regions.

Temperatures remain below average for this time of year, ranging from 10°C (50°F) in the north to 15-20°C (59-68°F) in the south.

SMHI meteorologist Torbjörn Simann advises patience, suggesting Swedes make the most of sunny moments when they occur.
