Sweden basks in Indian summer

Summer seems to be dragging its heels this year, allowing Swedes to pretend that September has not yet arrived. Meteorologists at weather authority SMHI say that it is still technically summer throughout the whole country.

"It is usually autumn in all of northern Sweden at this time of year, so autumn is clearly later than usual," says Swedish Television meterologist Pererik Åberg.

While the days remain unseasonably warm, it is getting chillier at night. Showers are expected next week, but daytime air temperatures are still expected to hover at a comfortable 22 degrees in the south and 15 degrees in the north.
