Difficult weather awaits and SMHI is now issuing a triple warning.

There are warnings of floods, strong winds and snowfall.

SMHI is now warning of several different problems around the country. There is a red, orange and yellow warning and it concerns both high flows and severe weather.

The red warnings apply to floods in upper Viskan and upper Ätran in Västra Götaland.

“After the recent rain and snow melt, the water levels in the lakes have risen. This can cause flooding near the lake. The levels are expected to culminate in the middle of the week”, writes SMHI regarding both the Whisper and the Eat.

The orange warnings also apply to floods. The warnings apply in several places in Götaland and in Svealand.

Among other things, Dyltaån north of Örebro and Kilaån in Södermanland.

Rivers and waterways in Västra Götaland are also in the risk zone for floods, including lower Ätran and Nissan, and SMHI has also issued orange warnings for these places.

The yellow warnings apply to strong winds and severe weather.

On Sunday evening, there is a risk of thunderstorms in several parts of the country. Access may be limited in these areas due to fallen trees and branches.
