A weak front with fog has passed inland Southern Norway night to Sunday. It is a foretaste of a bigger storm which is expected.

Seafarers in the south have already been noticing the storm that is coming. During the night has the Norwegian Society for Sea Rescue  helped one boat from 1929 onshore at Farsund.
– They were a little confused because of poor visibility, said Goran Gundersen from the rescue vessel Ægir .
He says that it is raining in the area but they are not worried about the storm coming and neither had any other assignments in the night.
Meteorological Institute reports news agency NTB that the storm is expected to hit the counties early Sunday afternoon. The entire day will be marked by fog and storms will go with it heavy showers and thunderstorms.
NVE warns about floods and landslides hazard in Hedmark, Oppland, Buskerud and Telemark, and avalanche danger in Vestfold, because of rain.
