When does it snow?

I'd like to time a visit to Gothenburg to coincide with the time of year when it is most likely to snow. Is there a particular month where snow is more likely? Is mid-February too late in the year?

Thanks!

Snow is in general not so common in Gothenburg due to the coastal climate, although the city experiences sleet quite often. Mid-february might be a bit snowy, but I wouldn't count on it.

This is a snow cover map based on official data from Swedish Meteorological and Hydrological Institute. You can follow the snow coverage day by day by changing the date under the map. ”Barmark” means there was no snow at all, the rest you can probably figure out by yourself.
