Too much of a good thing

Winter moves south

The high winds across Sweden and the Scandinavian peninsula are bringing frigid air from the arctic and accompanying temperatures below zero degrees Celsius.

High winds and snow are expected to continue overnight along the eastern Baltic coasts as far south as Gotland.

Heaviest snowfall will continue to be in the central coastal regions north of Stockholm.

Correspondingly traffic conditions will continue to be difficult throughout effected regions.

A different story in the far north though, where winter arrived some weeks ago - mostly clear skies are expected with only local snowfall and low temperatures ranging from minus 14 to minus 11.

The forecast high temperatures in a now snow-covered stockholm today is zero degrees Celsius.

In the other regional centres:

Kiruna  - 14C

Gothenburg  - 0 C

Malmö - 1 C
