Up to ten centimeters of snow are expected in parts of Sweden this weekend, meaning those longing for spring to arrive will have to keep waiting. The cold weather has kept golf courses closed and delayed the arrival of lapwings to Sweden.

"The snow will mainly reach the middle of the country. The focal point will be Jämtland and western Norrland provinces," Lovisa Andersson, a meteorologist at the weather service SMHI, tells news agency TT.

March was colder than usual in Sweden, and the first few days of April have had temperatures below average for this time of year.
