Warm winds from Africa mean temperatures over 20 degrees Celsius in some of Sweden this week.

“It looks like the tropical summer will last a while” says Alexandra Ohlsson, meteorologist at the weather service SMHI.

Warm winds were expected to be felt starting Tuesday in southern and mid-Sweden, and it should get even warmer on Wednesday. In northern cities such as Sundsvall, it will be around 10 degrees on Wednesday and in the Arctic city of Jokkmokk 6 degrees, rising to the weekend.

Next week’s temperatures will be cooler but still mild for autumn, says Alexandra Ohlsson to Swedish Radio News.
