    On weather sites, search for "Torsby", or "Hagfors". Its below freezing temperatures and expecting nothing less the following two weeks, with snow some of the days. Looking good so far!
    That's what was confusing. Weather sites all looked good. Page on Facebook said otherwise

    There are two sides of the coin.

    1) Snow conditions regarding snowbanks, doesn´t mean

    2) Icy bottom on stages.

    Hopefully there´s both. But if it was gravel last Saturday in Torsby and we get cold below zero up to date of RS, there still be gravel but maybe big snowbanks.

    If unlucky we´ll have neither...

    Don't pay too much attention to Karlstad, the stages aren't there.

    This one reckons small blizzard for Karlstad. (Sunday/ Monday) then warming up later in the extended forecast.

    Then again, with the exception of the Super Special, the weather in Karlstad are quite irrelevant for the actual rally.

    However, the forecast for Torsby is quite similar. Nice amount of snow the coming days, but loads of rain at the end of the long-term forecast. Hagfors however will not get any rain, but the same amount of snow. So I'd say the long term forecast is quite unstable atm and nothing to pay too much attention to. If the forecast for the 3rd, 4th and 5th of February is the same when we enter February, it is time to get a bit unhappy.

    Though, a day with rain, and then freezing temperatures will just be nice in terms of a bit of solid ice.

    If raining it´s important to have all stages plowed and packed snow before rain comes.
    Hopefully it will freeze again Before rally. Then we´ll have perfect surface.
