In recent years, Sweden has experienced a notable trend of rising temperatures during the month of September. This warming trend has led to what locals affectionately call "late summer bonus days." These are unexpected periods of warm and sunny weather that occur in September, sometimes even extending into early October.
Swedes take full advantage of these bonus days, flocking to parks, beaches, and outdoor cafes to soak up the sun and enjoy the pleasant temperatures before the arrival of colder autumn weather. It's a testament to how climate patterns are changing and how people adapt to these shifts, finding joy in unexpected weather phenomena.
Now, it looks like cooler air will arrive on Wednesday. First in northern Sweden and then moving to the South towards the evening.
Be sure to enjoy it. It could be the last warm weekend of the year, before darkness and rain come.
