Swimmers in Skåne enjoy the last throes of summer

Southern Sweden has experienced summer-like temperatures over the past few days, with people venturing to the beach one more time. But next week, or even this weekend, the winds of change are coming.

At the Ribersborg beach in Malmö, Herman, Molly and their grandfather Rolf are taking a dip, one last time. What is it like?

"Cold," says Herman.

"Very, very cold or just a little cold?" asks the reporter.

"Somewhere inbetween" he says.

Emma Niwén is with her mum and her dog. They agree that the temperature in the water is somewhere in the mid-teens.

"Fifteen," they say, "maybe reaching sixteen in the afternoon."

According to meteorologist Lovisa Andersson, at the Swedish met office SMHI, the warm temperatures in the south may last just a few more days.

"Next week, we have cold air moving down over almost the whole of Sweden, so the temperature will fall. So if you love these high temperatures, you have to seize the moment," she told Radio Sweden.
