About Folkets Väder

Folkets Väder is a free web service for anyone interested in weather. You can use it to report the weather where you are – at home or travelling – and read weather reports from around the world.

You can use the service to:

  • Report weather when you are at home or away travelling
  • Share your reports via e-mail, Facebook and other social media
  • Add extra interest to your reports with pictures
  • Provide extra information for people with the same leisure interests as you, such as good waves for windsurfing
  • Read and comment on other people’s reports
  • Communicate with other people interested in weather

Behind the service

Folkets Väder is owned by SMHI (the Swedish Meteorological and Hydrological Institute). Folkets Väder is also published via SMHI customer websites.

SMHI’s business concept is to provide help in major and minor decisions in which the weather is a factor.
