Ice on the roads is causing traffic problems in Skåne county, and two motorways are closed in four places.

The closures are on the E22 and E6. More accidents are being reported all the time, says Swedish Radio's traffic desk for Malmö. Drivers are advised to avoid the E6 between Landskrona and Helsingborg

Rain mixed with snow has been falling over much of Sweden's southern half during Sunday, causing generally icy conditions, says the national weather bureau SMHI to news agency TT.

In the north it is colder, and large amounts of snow are expected in northern Västerbotten county and the southern parts of Norrbotten county, with up to 50 centimeters of snow, says SMHI.
