Weather in Sweden?

Can anyone recommend a reliable site/source for weather forecast in Sweden (west coast)?
A source for synoptic charts will be great too.

Thanks A LOT!!
Ron

Re: Weather in Sweden?

Check the Swedish met office English language page:
SMHI - Weatherforcast for the Baltic sea area | SMHI

For synoptic charts try the UK metoffice.
Current analysis: http://www2.wetter3.de/Fax/bracknell+00.gif
+24H: http://www2.wetter3.de/Fax/bracknell+24.gif

Much more available if you understand a Scandinavian language, for ex "yr.no" and "dmi.dk".

Then of course there are ale the grib viewers, for example ZyGrib.

Which reminds me about an important thing.
The Scandinavian forecasts uses m/s for wind speed.
To get knots just double the figures. So if you see a forecast of wind speed 7-10, then it's really 14-20 knots.

Re: Weather in Sweden?

Thank you all for your replies.
I found the Swedish weather service (SHML) to be the most unreliable.

Tellie, actually the Norwegean one is the most accurate - not kidding!
