It appears fall has completely skipped Scandinavia this year. Norway, Denmark and Finland have been breaking all-time cold and snowfall records since October, as has Sweden — best not tell Greta.
Swedes have been suffering weather typical of January this week, particularly in the central parts. Cold-weather warnings were issued for Värmland, Dalarna, Gävleborg, and Jämtland on Monday, where more than 20 cm (8 inches) of early-season snow wound up accumulating.
Heavy snow began settling on Sunday afternoon, and almost-instantaneously numerous accidents were reported on the nation’s roads — 15 cars were involved in a collision near Stäketbron in the metropolitan area of Greater Stockholm.
According to authorities, this is likely the earliest such a strong snowstorm has hit Sweden in at least 40 years.
Forecasts reveal hard frosts will follow the snow, with the mercury in northern and central parts predicted to tumble to -20C (-4F). This follows the new seasonal record low of -33C (-27.4F) which was set over the weekend.
The cold times are returning in line with historically low solar activity.
Prepare for the COLD — grow your own.
