With some still in the dark, Sweden buckles down for more bad weather

1:25 min

As parts of Sweden are still recovering from Storm Alfrida that hit shortly after the new year, some of those same areas are bracing for another round of nasty weather.

In Stockholm's northern coastal areas, about 9,000 homes are still without power after Alfrida blew down trees and limbs over power lines last week. 

Now, warnings are in place for central Sweden, starting Monday evening, as snow and rain are expected to fall across much of area, especially along Sweden's Baltic coastline.

Lovisa Andersson, a meteorologist at the national weather service, which has issued warnings for the snow set to hit central Sweden, told Radio Sweden that up to 25 cm of snow could fall in the eastern counties of Gälveborg, Uppland and parts of northern Stockholm county.
