The sudden arrival of Summer-like weather during the weekend has had a few negative consequences. Sunlight has combined with air pollutants to produce high levels of surface ozone, which can affect asthmatics and people with heart or lung conditions.
Much of the pollution has arrived on southern winds from outside the country. For the first time in five years, ozone levels in southeastern Sweden have risen so high that the authorities have issued a formal health warning.
The weekend’s warm and sunny weather continues. But after record high temperatures in the north, it’s cooling down there somewhat.
The temperature at 11:00 AM here in Stockholm was 19 degrees Celsius.
The sun rose here in Stockholm today at 4:34 AM, with sunset at 8:59 PM.
