Northern Sweden could be hit by storm-force winds over the weekend, Swedish weather service SMHI warns, and says it may issue a class two warning, its second highest level.
An area of low pressure is to move in across Sweden tomorrow, bringing strong winds and rain for much of the country, and on Saturday the winds are expected to peak in southern and central Norrland, with gusts reaching storm force in places.
The winds could be strong enough to cause damage to forests and property.
Snow is also expected in the Far North during the weekend.
