New Year's Eve was unusually mild for parts of northern Sweden, in some regions it was even warmer than on Midsummer, Swedish Television news reports.

Bydalsfjällen and Järve in northern Sweden both reported temperatures of 5 degrees Celsius as midnight struck. On Midsummer's Eve in June the mercury only managed to crawl up to 2.5 degrees Celsius in Järve.

Local resident Fredrik Holmberg tells SVT that he could wear the same coat for each occasion, adding: "It was a strange feeling".

"I'm 40 years old and I don't remember another New Year's Eve being as warm as this, but that could be that my memories have been embellished over the years", he says.
