Vargavinter – “wolf winter” – that’s an especially cold and harsh winter. And that’s what the newspaper Expressen warned about yesterday:
“Long time forecast · prepare for the wolf winter · cold for several months · snow from arctic.”
As a winter maniac I would love to believe Expressen, but I have my doubts. Let’s the when Expressen warned about vargavinter the last years …
- November 2017 – forecast: coldest winter for five years
- October 2016 – forecast: coldest winter for many years
- November 2014 – worst wolf winter for many decades
- November 2013 – risk for extreme winter in Sweden
As you can see, especially extreme winters seem to be quite common in Sweden, at least in the headlines of the tabloid press.
