"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.
