Swedes should enjoy the last day of the summer heatwave as cooler temperatures are headed this week for much of the country.

The mercury should stay somewhere between 25 to 30 degrees throughout Sweden on Tuesday.

But on Wednesday, according to the national weather service a cold front will begin moving across the country.

For the past week, hot weather has been baking Sweden, particularly the North, and prompting heat advisories and forest fires.

Temperatures, however, will not dip too low.

“By Wednesday, we’ll be back to a normal Swedish summer again and temperatures will be between 20 to 25 degrees for the rest of the week,” says Sofia Söderberg, a meteorologist at the weather service.
