21 weather stations in the country set temperature records in October. The warmest was in Tafjord and Surnadal in Møre og Romsdal, both of which measured 25.5 degrees highest.
NRK writes that the temperature records in Tafjord and Surnadal were set on the so-called winter day 14 October. The temperature was 0.1 degree lower on the old record. The old record was in Molde in 2005 and is 25.6 degrees.
At 13 of the 21 weather stations that recorded record, temperatures were above 20 degrees, according to NRK. Five of these had over 20 degrees for the first time ever.
“The warmer weather that caused some of these records was created by air masses pressed between low pressure and high pressure systems. In Bergen, the remains of tropical hurricane Michael were in the Atlantic on 11 and 12 October. A few days later in Tafjord and Surnadal we had a light winds, which made it extra warm,” says state meteorologist John Smits to the canal.
