1999 actually. -43C seems to be some kind of magic threshold. -42 to -43C is reached many years, but lower temperatures than that are rarely recorded. in 2001, a temperature of -44.0C was recorded in the notourius frost hollow idre-storbo in northwestern svealand - so that's the lowest during the 2000s.

it's a shame the station in vouggatjålme isn't in operation anymore. undoubtedly, that was the coldest station not only in sweden but in all of the nordic countries.

Vuoggatjålme should have been kept operational if it is the coldest in the Nordic countries (not for annual mean, that would be on Svalbard). What is the annual mean temperature at Vuoggatjålme? Coldest on the Norwegian mainland is -3.1C (1961-90) in Siccajavre if I remember correctly.

Coldest abs minimum for Norway 2014 (so far, December could change this): -41.9C / -43.4F in Karasjok (131 m) on January 20th.
Warmest abs max temperature for 2014 so far: 34.5C /94.1F in Gulsvik (142 m, inland valley N of Oslo) on 23th July.

oh, i didn't mean for annual temperature, i meant for extreme low temperatures. Vouggatjålme is the only nordic station that has gone below -52C. fact is - it has been below -52C twice. -52.1C and -52.6C respectively (two consecutive days in february 1966, but nontheless). for annual, the coldest station in sweden is naimakka (-3.0C annual mean 61-90).

despite being in operation for just 30 years (1965-1995) it has swedens national record low for january (with karesuando, -49.0C), february (nordic all time, -52.6C) and mars (-45.8C). if you look at google earth, you see that vouggatjålme is located in a valley surrounded by 1000 meter high mountains in all but the easterly direction. that plus the more continental location, and still relatively high latitude, makes it an ideal spot for record-breaking cold.

The only place we have left now with a station that could hit the -50C mark again is Nikkaluokta. Even though it's unlikely, it still is possible. I visited Kiruna and I thought it was cold until I saw Nikkaluokta's averages. January 2014 was brutal there

I'm not looking forward to the day that we don't get no more snow here in Stockholm, I want a repeat of December 2010

Indeed seems to be so. Kittilä recorded -43.6C in 2006, and that's the only -43 since the all time record of -51.5C in 1999, also in Kittilä, which records about 50% of the coldest temps. (The other half goes usually to Salla, close to the Russian border.)

There's the full table since 1990 if interested:
  • Inari -40,6 11.1.1990
  • Salla Naruska -38,5 29.1.1991
  • Utsjoki Kevo -35,3 10.1.1992
  • Utsjoki Kevo, Kittilä Pulju ja Pokka -37,2 15.1. ja 20.2.1993
  • Salla Naruska -41,1 11.2.1994
  • Kittilä Pokka -42,0 29.12.1995
  • Sodankylä -37,0 6.1.1996
  • Kuusamo Kiutaköngäs -41,4 10.2.1997
  • Sodankylä Lokka -43,1 17.2.1998
  • Kittilä Pokka -51,5 28.1.1999
  • Kuusamo Kiutaköngäs -36,5 27.12.2000
  • Pyhäjärvi Ojakylä -42,5 8.2.2001
  • Taivalkoski Paloasema -40,7 31.12.2002
  • Kuusamo Kiutaköngäs -41,9 7.1.2003
  • Salla Naruska -38,7 11.2.2004
  • Salla Naruska -36,5 29.1.2005
  • Kittilä Pokka -43,6 20.1.2006
  • Salla Naruska -39,9 6.2.2007
  • Kittilä Pokka -33,7 24.2.2008
  • Inari Sevettijärvi -37,6 7.2.2009
  • Kuhmo Kalliojoki -41,3 20.2.2010
  • Salla Naruska -41,8 18.2.2011
  • Inari Kaamanen -42,7 6.2.2012
  • Sodankylä Vuotso -39,7 9.12.2013
What's peculiar is that Salla Naruska is at 213 m asl and Kittilä at 275 asl.

Weird how some years my city has greater extremes than the entire country of Norway.

2007 Norway------Highest: 32.1C, Lowest: -39.0C

2007 Winnipeg----Highest: 35.3C, Lowest: -42.2C


1936 Norway------Highest: 31.4C, Lowest: -41.6C

1936 Winnipeg----Highest: 42.2C, Lowest: -41.7C

Just to name a few.

Lots of Canadian cities are like that. Here's another example:

2009 Norway------Highest: 34.2C, Lowest: -36.8C

2009 Watson Lake, Yukon----Highest: 35.4C, Lowest: -47.6C
