STOCKHOLM, Sweden, Sept. 28 (UPI) -- Residents of northern Sweden awoke Friday to the first snow fall of the season, officials said.

The country's northeastern coastline was blanketed snow Thursday night, The Local.se reported.

The SMHI issued a slippery roads warning for the area Thursday night and Friday morning, as some roads were covered with ice.

The weather was expected to improve on Friday.
