After several weeks of warm weather in the south and east of Norway, meteorologists are now forecasting a rainy period. However, the north of the country will get to enjoy some nice weather in the days ahead. 

“What we get now is not tropical heat, but as summer is not over yet, things can still happen. But according to my forecasts, I can’t see any tropical heat just around the corner,” on-duty meteorologist Håkon Mjelstad in the Meteorological Institute told news bureau NTB.

After several weeks with up to 30 degrees Celsius in large parts of Southern Norway, the rainy weather returns next week.

In the capital, which could enjoy temperatures of around 28 degrees during the weekend, it is now time for a sharp drop in temperature – all the way down to 15 degrees in the next few days.

“On Tuesday, it will be reasonably wet. Otherwise, it will be unstable, and there may be afternoon showers. So the days can start well, and then there will be more and more clouds and rain,” the meteorologist added.

Fine weather in Northern Norway

It seems that the fine weather will start moving north on Monday.

“The high pressure from the south will come to Northern Norway. It will be hot, with small amounts of precipitation and a lot of sun at the beginning of next week,” Mjelstad said.

“The warmest temperatures are expected a little further inland, where they could reach up to 25 degrees – and maybe a little more,” he said.

However, the summer weather will not persist, and there will be unstable weather with a chance of rain showers also in the north during the week.

Most of the country will have to settle for some rain next week, although the weather will vary locally.
