The prognosis for the day is sun, sun, sun, according to my favorite weather channel, Vader Kanalen.
They have photos of their perky staff posed for the hour-by-hour breakdown of what’s happening here — and in Stockholm, one seems to need that kind of detail in the forecast, as things do change by the hour. On Thursday morning, for example, we woke to rain; a few hours later it was sunny and windy and perfect for riding my bike to class.
I dag i Stockholm skiner solen och den hojer grader ska bli ved 4°C. Solen upp 07:24:59, solen ner 17:40:55. (That’s about 40°F. It was down to -3°C last night.)
For comparison: in Los Angeles today, the sun will shine and the expected high will be 23°C (that’s nearly 75°F for those of you in the US). Sunrise 06:57:21, sunset 18:19:59.
(NOTE: For those of you who read my blog while I was in Zurich, http://zurichsee.wordpress.com, you will be happy to note that this is my first real weather post here in Stockholm. I guess I’ve been trying to ignore it! It may be that I start reporting on the sunlight, or lack thereof… )
