Temperatures vary greatly from north to south

Temperatures vary greatly from north to south. Southern and central parts of the country have warm summers and cold winters, with average high temperatures of 20 to 25 C (68 to 77 F)[71] and lows of 12 to 15 C (54 to 59 F)[72] in the summer, and average temperatures of -4 to 2 C (25 to 36 F) in the winter,[73] while the northern part of the country has shorter, cooler summers and longer, colder and snowier winters, with temperatures that often drop below freezing from September through May.[74][75] The highest temperature ever recorded in Sweden was 38 C (100 F) in Mlilla in 1947, while the coldest temperature ever recorded was −52.6 C (−62.7 F) in Vuoggatjlme in 1966.[76][77]
On average, most of Sweden receives between 500 and 800 mm (20 and 31 in) of precipitation each year, making it considerably drier than the global average. The southwestern part of the country receives more precipitation, between 1000 and 1200 mm (39 and 47 in), and some mountain areas in the north are estimated to receive up to 2000 mm (79 in). Despite northerly locations, southern and central Sweden may have almost no snow in some winters.[78][79]
