The first snow of the winter season caused flight cancellations and delays in Stockholm on Friday, but a brighter outlook is just around the corner.

Fifteen flights from the Swedish capital's Arlanda airport were cancelled before operations returned to normal at 9.30, and weather warnings for snow and wind were put in place in parts of southern Sweden.

The Swedish national weather agency SMHI told Radio Sweden however that the worst weather is expected to be over, with a sunnier forecast for the upcoming weekend.
