Sweden’s unseasonably warm winter continues. On Tuesday morning, Swedish Radio broadcast live from Stockholm’s botanical gardens, where many plants have been flowering three or four months earlier than usual.
The bears at the Kolmården animal park have finally begun hibernating, two months late, kept up by the mild temperatures. The head zookeeper says he thinks they should wake up at the usual time in April.
There’s rain in much of the country, turning to snow in the north.
Temperatures across Sweden:
- Stockholm: 4 degrees Celsius
- Malmö: 10
- Gothenburg: 10
- Kiruna: -5
The sun rose here in Stockholm at 8:41 AM, with sunset at 3:12 PM.
