Wind gusts as high as 100 km (60 miles) per hour are forecast along with heavy snowfall.
“In some areas, we may be talking about up to 20 or 30 centimetres (8 to 12 inches),” SMHI meteorologist Marcus Sjöstedt told the Aftonbladet newspaper.
“There are definitely going to be problems on the roads and for different types of transport. People should expect a number of delays when it comes to trains.”
Sweden’s National Transport Administration is on “high alert,” warning motorists in southern Sweden to consider leaving their vehicles at home on Thursday
Swedish weather agency SMHI issued class 2 warnings for rough seas off Sweden’s west coast, as well as for strong winds and snow in Dalarna, Gästrikland, and Uppland across central Sweden.
A class 2 warning entails weather conditions that could put the public in danger, cause material damage, or disrupt vital public services.
Transit authorities have already cancelled trains on the Malmö-Ystad-Simrishamn route across Skåne during Thursday and Friday, and several ferry departures have also been cancelled.
Temperatures on Thursday are expected to range from around zero in central Sweden down to -20C in the north.
