Here i will post my current observations of the weather in Stockholm which,

as always is quite changeble!

So... Chilly in Stockholm today, but some sun too.

The day began with a moderate frost at -7,9°c just after midnight but rose quickly as the sun came to life.

At noon it stabilized just above 5°c, with some wind, so it didn't feel especially warm.

Next week will seem to give a arctic blast and the temperatures will plumet a lot.

Currently it seems that most days will have average temps. below zero with -10°c to -6°c nighttime

and days barely above zero, -2°c to 1°c, with a big chance of snow showers...

That is very cold for this time of year!

As it seems now the 10°-barrier will not be broken this month. Highest this far, a mere 6°c.

    Really chilly today...

    The day began at -2°c and some light snow, and by mid day it rose quickly to 1°c with clouds,

    before it dropped fast again. Total accumulation during the day was around 3 cm of new snow,

    and once again we are snow covered everywhere... Officially we should have somewhat a hint of spring

    because of that it was only a few snow spots and snow piles + dry roads before this snowing, but not now!

    The rest of the will seem to give very cool conditions! :)

    Very cold today in Stockholm, and we have seen a quite low maxima for this time of the year.

    It has been sunny mostly today, but a few times quite heavy snow showers, nothing long lasting though.

    Big difference from last week! Very warm day today in Stockholm, astonishing 14°c with sunshine!

    Since the 1st of April it has been double figures all days, between 10-11°c with the highest one today.

    It feels just wonderful after the chillyness in the end of March. All signs of the snow is gone, but ice at the

    lake is still left in the very moment of now. :D

    you certainly have had a big change in a week

    Yes, it certainly was!

    And today once again very warm. I think we are going here for a very warm April.

    Since the first day it has always been 10° or above, and it does not seem that it will

    get any colder, maybe not a small dusting of snow. But north of Stockholm it has been

    completely different.

    18°c today in Stockholm, very high being just 10 days into April.

    But along the coastal cities Umeå and Skellefteå, some 5-600 km north, just zero or a little above today.

    Normally it shouldn't be more than a just few degrees difference, at this time of the year, but this is high,

    and we do still have the same air pressure and wind direction.

    My guess it that the water, the Gulf of Bothnia is still so cold, and frozen,

    that clouds and fog easily can come in and cool down the cities a lot.

    One factor could also be that they still have quite a lot snow, here it disappeared around the 25th of March.

    The Swedish bureau of meterology has officially said that summer has reached,

    the very southern parts of the country, due to many days with maximas around 20°

    and average temps. at or above 10°.

    Here in Sweden we have the criteria that summer begins when the avg. temp is above

    10° five consecutive days in a row. And that is very early in the season.

    The normal values are probably like two weeks into May.

    But it will take some time before the whole country has summer since the very northern

    parts have still quite chilly days which result in avg. temps no higher than 0° or close!

    A new month is here and as I look back it seems that this April month was the warmest

    and the driest one since records began.

    Stockholm Arlanda airport had a 7°c average with 13°c as maxima and 1°c as minima.

    The normal is 4°c for the average, 9°c for the maxima and 0°c for the low.

    And the most spectacular thing was the drought through the whole month.

    It rained just one day, and that was the night between the 8/9th, when

    1-2 mm were recorded. And since then has it been completely dry,

    no rain at all, just sunny days with varied cloudiness and days above

    the normal. No April snow too, which is quite common here since 90%

    of all years have such a event some time during the month.

    I was speaking to someone in Denmark today, and they said it has been beautiful there for about 3 weeks.

    Norway (Oslo) has also apparantley been having some nice weather recently too.

    A new month is here and May has passed by.

    It became a quite normal temperated month over here.

    Avg. Maxima was 16,0°c and the Minima around 5,5°c,

    so very near the normal, just ½° above it actually.

    The rainfall was just like any May-month, nothing special

    really, not especially much, and no extreme drought which

    was significant for April this year.

    The temperatures varied between -1°c the morning of May 1st,

    and 26°c the last day of the month, in the middle of probably

    the biggest heatwave in Sweden for a long time in May.

    Many stations along the coast of Bothnia had some heat records,

    but now into June the heat is over, with a recent newcomer from

    the north, a cold front, which has put down temps. with 10-15°

    from recent days.

    It is now 8,5°c with quite some rain. Yesterday it was 23°c at this

    time, quite some difference! And this mess will probably stay here

    at least one week further from now. :(

    Hi, Swedish Weather

    I'm going on a Baltic cruise next Wednesday (10 June) for 10 days and due to spend a day in Stockholm on 14 June. Look forward to receiving your updates. We're also visiting Copenhagen, Oslo, Helskink, Tallinn and St Petersburg

    Hopefully this northerly snap - that we're experiencing as well - will have disappeared by the time we get there :)

    Hehe. Hope your cruise has gone well over here despite the awful weather!

    The weather is really rubbish at this moment, 11°c daytime with pouring rain!

    Swedish meterologists have said that this is the coldest start to summer in more

    than 50 years in some places in the country, Stockholm is one of them.

    The only sunny cloudless summer day was June 1, when we had a 23°c warmth.

    Since then it has been riduculous low temperatures, with a remarkable t-max of

    just 8°c at June 4, and some very low minimas at the 6th and the 8th,

    of just 0°c!

    The average temperature is this far at 10°c for June, 14°c for the maxima and 6°c for the low.

    That is some 5°c below the normal, and we are now up to 300% of the normal percipitation

    in June. What a contrast to April, when weather records were broken all over the

    country, with both warmth and drought. Here in Stockholm it just rained for one day,

    when it came 2 mm from the sky. B)

    Could anyone predict the following event:

    Which place is the sunniest in the summer 2009?

    Visby

    Umeå

    Ölands North

    Luleå

    Stockholm

    Östersund

    Karlstad

    Norrköping

    Borlänge

    Lund

    Gothenburg

    Kiruna

    Växjö

    Which ever one is furthest North :lol:

    I believe it will be Stockholm, or the island of Öland, since we are both at the east coast.

    The easters in the north do have longer days, but often more cloudiness, so i believe that the south will win.

    And in the bottom we will probably find some city at the west coast or probably Växjö at the southern highlands.

    They nearly always tend to get in the bottom of yearly annual sunshine hours!

    The summer is definitely over for Stockholm.

    After a warm September with much sunshine and small amounts of rain it seems that October will be cold.

    Tomorrow a cold front from the north will sweep down over the country and give daily maximas of only 10°.

    And the long range forecast is saying approx. 7° to 10° daytime with nights possibly below 0° for Stockholm,

    so autumn is definitely here. But for the northern parts of the country winter will begin. Daytime maximas

    around 0° and nighttime much below zero.

    Last week we had high morning lows of 10-12°, and the last days it has been around -2°-0° with lots of frost and sunshine.

    Seems to become a very nice and autumnal October this year with a nice mix of weather. Tomorrow a deep low pressure

    will come in from the west onto the westcoast and further north-east giving the middle western parts of the country the first snow

    of the season. But it'll take some time for the capitol to get some snow. If October continues with this chilly pattern maybe we could get

    an early real snowfall in the end of October, but that is not especially usual. We will see!

    Hello, 1½ month since the last reply.

    October ended quite chilly with some very very light snow showers the 14/15th,

    but indeed it was some appriciated autumn sunshine that month. The average

    ended up at 4,4°c, cooler than november!

    This endless "south-west monsoon" has brought us mild temperatures combined with endless raining and cloudy skies.

    This far in November we are now up with 4,5°c, nearing 3°c above the normal, with barely any winter activity at all.

    The lowest temperature this far is very high, a mere -1°c, we hit -10°c in 2008.

    The coming days seem to bring high temperatures, with daylies between 5°c and 10°c,

    and all nights above zero. Maybe the beginning of the December will at last give us some wintryness! :nonono:

    The winter is certainly on the move right now for the whole continent!

    The beginning of December started out quite mere here in Scandinavia,

    and in Stockholm the first 13 days have averaged around 1°c without any snow coverage.

    Only two days were 'winter-like', and they were the second and the third, when daytime

    frosts persisted with temps around -2° daytime with down to -8° at night.

    But this week has been completely influenced by southerlies made by the high pressure system

    in the east, bringing up mild temperatures at 3-4° and barely any difference at night.

    But now things are changing, yesterday we had a weak snowfall and things are getting cooler,

    today it has been at 1°, enough to get my snow pile alive.

    Tomorrow -2° is forecasted with gradually cooler weather on the move. And as the Swedish

    Meteorological agency SMHI is forecasting some Lake Effect for the east coast, some good snow

    accumulations are to be made. A 30 cm snow coverage by the end of next week is possible!

    Thursday and Friday are forecasted to maybe give some brutally cold air in the area around

    Stockholm, with daytime temps down to -10° and -15° and maybe a possible -20° at night!
