Cold Weather Reaches Stockholm To Late to Skate

  Although winter weather has finally hit southern Sweden, a large annual long-distance ice-skating event outside of Stockholm has been moved further north because of the weak ice around the capital.

  Those planning a huge annual long-distant ski race in central Sweden are keeping their winter fingers crossed – hoping there will be more snow and freezing temperatures to prevent a cancellatin of the event.

There are now partially cloudy skies over Stockholm and much of Sweden – especially along the coast. Snow in many areas from north to south.

The temperature here at noon: - 1 degree celsius.

In Malmö to the far south - 3.

In Kiruna to the far north - 9-

The sun rose here in Stockholm this morning at 7.20. Sunset at 4.47 p.m.
