People struggle against wind and drifting snow in Stockholm Dec. 5.

Forecasters have issued a class 2 storm warning for central and southern Sweden, saying that Stockholm may get another 12 inches of snow in the next 24 hours. The main airport was hampered by the snowfall, canceling flights and taking no arriving planes, just as the Nobel Prize winners were expected for activities leading up to the awards ceremony on Dec. 10.
