"Tropical summer" to last into autumn

Warm winds from Africa will mean temperatures over 20 degrees Celsius in some of Sweden this week.

"It looks like the tropical summer will last a while" says Alexandra Ohlsson, meteorologist at the weather service SMHI.

Today Tuesday the warm winds will begin to be felt in southern and mid-Sweden, and on Wednesday it will get even warmer. In the north cities such as Sundsvall, it will be around 10 degrees on Wednesday and in the arctic city of Jokkmokk 6 degrees, rising to the weekend.

Next week will be cooler, but even then it will still be mild autumn temperatures, says Alexandra Ohlsson to Swedish Radio News.
