“Hot air has avoided Sweden with uncanny precision,” says the Swedish Meteorological and Hydrological Institute (SMHI) in its summary of the summer of 2012. “It was the worst in twelve years (if you like sun and heat, that is).”
It has been a long time since the Swedish people expressed such disappointment at summer weather, writes SMHI on its website. This year, June, July and August have brought a lot of rain, a little heat and few sunny days.
In its summary of summer 2012, SMHI describes it as “a disappointment for most vacationers.”
“There was no single extended period of warmth, sunshine and clear blue skies throughout the summer. It has been twelve years since that last happened.
“There was no shortage of hot air over the Northern Hemisphere as a whole, but it avoided Sweden with uncanny precision.”
The average temperature in the country was slightly lower than normal, but it varied. In North Norrland, summer was the coldest since 1998, while in southern Götaland, which fared the best, we need go back only to 2004 to find a cooler summer.
It has been wetter than usual in Stockholm and Linköping, where you have to go back to 1960 to find similar amounts of precipitation. But in Sweden as a whole, it has not rained more than usual.
Some facts about the summer of 2012:
• Maximum temperature: 32.1 C degrees, in Lund on 20 August.
• Lowest temperature: -6.3 percent, in Börtnan June 1.
• Highest daily precipitation: 163 mm, Hinshult, Småland, July 7.
• Thunder / Lightning richest days: 12,224 lightning discharges on 6 June.
• Number of tropical nights (with 24 hr temperature not less than 20 degrees): 0.
• Most summer days (25 C degrees or more): 16 , Lund.
• Minimum number of summer days: 0, Norrland.
