SMHI snow warning: “Very serious consequences expected”

Published November 29, 2021 at 5:49 p.m.

For the first time since the renewed warning system was introduced at the end of October, SMHI has issued a red warning for wind in combination with snowfall in parts of western Götaland.

The warning is valid from Wednesday morning until Thursday morning.

“Red warning is used in weather developments that can lead to very serious consequences for society, great danger to the public and very serious damage to property and the environment. Extensive disruptions to social functions are expected in a red warning,” writes SMHI.

When a red warning is issued, according to the authority, the public in the affected area should “completely refrain from activities that involve vulnerability during expected weather development and take preventive measures to reduce consequences for life, the environment and property”.

“Public activities and community bodies should adapt activities to meet consequences, take appropriate preventive measures, ensure that necessary information reaches the public and increase internal preparedness for future weather developments.”

Virtually the whole of Götaland is affected by the snowfall and in addition to the red warning, an orange warning is issued for a larger part of western Götaland and a yellow warning is issued for the rest of Götaland, except for the northernmost part.

Orange warning means an expected weather situation with serious consequences for society and danger to the public. Yellow warning means expected weather conditions with consequences for society and certain risks for the public.
