Frozen Easter Eggs for Sweden

Many parts of Southern Sweden woke up to snow cover on Easter Sunday. Up 10 cm in parts. Orebra recorded a low of -14c making it the coldest April night since 1944, locally -17c reported in Central/ Northern Parts. In Karlstad  further south -9c coldest night since 1988. Stockholm has only seen temps just above freezing for much of last week with intermittent snow.  Of course not too unusual for low temps at this time of year over there but such low temps occur in the first half of the month rarther than the second half. The continuation of very low temps day and night likely to continue well into next week with 24 hour below freezing temps expected further north, looks like Sweden is on course for one of its coldest Aprils ever.

Picture below from Northern Sweden on Easter Sunday where a low of -20c occurred in the far Norrland. In Sodermanland -17c last night, the coldest April night ever in that location. Major cities further south, Malmo , Gotenburg all reporting sub zero night temps and day time temps close to freezing. 10cm of lying snow also reported in parts of Southern Sweden. Most of this week will see temps well below average with a little light relief for the southern parts on Thursday. Shaping up for one of the coldest Aprils in the history of recorded temps in Sweden.

A large area of Sweden has been put on high risk grass fire alert. The cause is the present very slow rate of snow melt which is exposing last years grass in a very dry state. Latest satellite pictures still show extensive snow cover in parts of all Scandinavian countries, apart from Denmark.
