Radio Sweden.After a week where summer officially arrived in parts of Sweden, the met office issued a class one avalanche warning as five centimetres of snow is expected in the regions of Jämtland, Gävleborg and Dalarna in central Sweden.

In a country like Sweden, which is three times the size of the UK, it is not uncommon to have three seasons taking place at the same time.

In central parts of Svealand, and some parts of Götaland, in southern Sweden, the weekend will be wet with the possibility of thunder storms.
