No sun in Stockholm throughout the month of December

During the last month of the year, Stockholm and other Swedish cities were not allowed a bit of sunlight. This is a particularly rare phenomenon. The last similar experience in the Scandinavian country dates back to 1934. Experts at the Swedish Meteorological Institute do not seem very optimistic about what will happen in the next few days.

From the beginning of December, most Swedish cities fell into gray or darkness. Although the Swedes are familiar with hellish winters, the succession of sunny days remains an unusual fact for them. Every year for almost a century, Stockholm has enjoyed 13 sunny days during the month of December.

In this part of the world, the days are exceptionally short: the sun rises around 8 a.m. and leaves only a short time before going to bed.

Not even an hour of sunshine!

Experts believe that natural light will not be there, at least for the next few days. The inhabitants of Stockholm will still have to be satisfied with the lamps to simulate the dawn of the day.

According to Thomas Carlund, meteorologist at the Swedish Meteorological Institute, the amount of solar radiation that has been recorded so far has not even reached an hour of sunshine. Things would even have gotten worse in mid-December.

“Sunshine hours are counted when solar radiation is greater than 120 watts per square meter, it is from this power that the sun's shadows can be discerned. "

Because of a south-easterly wind which brings down the clouds?

The scientist recalled that this meteorological phenomenon is not a first in Sweden. In his words, it is the manifestation of a "natural variation of climate". He explained that the situation is due to a wind coming from the south-east. This force of nature causes a rise in temperatures and therefore a drop in the altitude of the clouds. These then hide the sunlight.

Sunlight is a key element for life. Not being exposed to it for too long can have negative impacts on both physical and mental health. With this gloomy atmosphere which ends the year marked by Covid-19, it must be recognized that the population is losing its morale and its patience.

“We need vitamin D from sunlight. This lack of sunlight affects us physiologically. And you can't see your friends right now either, that doesn't help. "
