Anyone dreaming of a white Christmas in southern Sweden had better give up, news agency TT reports, as it looks like being a green festive period for the south of the country.

However, if there is snow on the ground where you are, then the chances are it will stay around for the next few days, and into Christmas.

Temperatures are expected to fall below freezing for much of the country by Christmas Eve, but any precipitation is most likely to fall as sleet until then, and will not settle.

"The chances of a white Christmas are very small. In northern Värmland, Dalarna and further north, however, it looks like the snow will stay around, and more is on its way next week", says Lovisa Andersson from the Swedish weather service SMHI.

A new area of low pressure, bringing wind and rain, is forecast to move over southwestern parts on Christmas Day.
