Orange warning for wind and snow

🔶 SMHI has issued an orange warning for wind and snow regarding Northern Götaland, Eastern Sveland and Northern Skåne. The heavy snowfall in combination with windy weather can lead to traffic disruptions and power outages.

During Tuesday, an occasionally heavy snowfall area spreads to the northeast over Götaland. On the night of Wednesday, the snow will begin to stop over the western part and is expected to move away from the eastern part during Wednesday. 15 to locally 25 cm of snow may fall. The snowfall is associated with a deep low pressure, so the wind will increase during Tuesday to a fresh easterly wind, which will then turn increasingly to the north or northwest.

The warning for Northern Götaland and Eastern Svealand applies from 7 March at 06:00 - March at 15:00. The warning for Northern Skåne applies from 7 March kl. 09.00 - 23.00.

How can this affect me?

  • Very limited accessibility on roads, especially in open landscapes, that, for example, has not been cleared of snow or due to traffic accidents.
  • Delays in bus-, train- and air traffic as well as canceled departures.
  • Likely power outage in areas with overground power lines, which also affects mobile networks for telecommunications.
