Weather in October

October in Sweden brings the full onset of autumn, with a significant drop in temperatures compared to September. Southern regions of the country, including cities like Stockholm and Malmo, witness temperatures ranging from 5°C (41°F) to 10°C (50°F). In contrast, the northern regions, including areas like Kiruna, see colder conditions, with temperatures from 0°C (32°F) to 5°C (41°F).

The daylight hours in October decrease as the month progresses. Early in the month, southern Sweden sees about 11 hours of daylight, decreasing to approximately 9 hours by the end. In the northern parts of the country, daylight hours are slightly fewer.

Precipitation in October is generally between 40mm (1.57") and 60mm (2.36"). The rainfall is fairly evenly spread throughout the month, with the likelihood of it turning to sleet or snow in the northern regions as temperatures drop.

Wind conditions in October are relatively calm, with typical speeds ranging from 10km/h (6.2mph) to 15km/h (9.3mph). However, stronger gusts up to 30km/h (18.6mph) can occur, especially during stormy weather and in coastal areas.

The "ruska" period continues into early October, especially in the northern parts of Sweden, with the landscape showcasing vibrant hues of yellow, orange, and red. Towards the end of the month, the leaves start to fall, and the first hints of winter start to appear with frosty mornings and, in the north, the first snowflakes.

October is still a suitable month for outdoor activities such as hiking, especially early in the month when the autumn colors are at their peak. However, the drop in temperatures and shorter daylight hours, especially compared to September, suggest packing warm clothing and planning activities for daylight hours.
