With around 20 degrees in the whole of Southern Norway through August, there may be a record number of days with over 20 degrees, meteorologist Martin Granerød believes.
“We see that Blindern in Oslo had 76 days with temperatures above 20 degrees during June, July, and August. The record is 78 days, and it is from 2006. Now the record could be broken, with several days left in August,” on-duty meteorologist Martin Granerød told NTB.
He stated that the weather would be characterized by two pressure systems – a high-pressure area in the Norwegian Sea and a low-pressure area over the Baltic Sea. The whole country lies between the two.
The high pressure will most likely prevail in the whole of Southern Norway, which will get good late summer heat and a lot of sunshine up to next week.
However, in the days leading up to the weekend, strong winds can present problems. A danger warning has been issued for gusts of wind in Innlandet.
“Trees can tip over, and trampolines can fly away, that is typical for this time of year,” Granerød said.
People should attach loose objects and garden furniture and generally be prepared for strong gusts of wind.
Towards the weekend, however, the wind will calm down.
“The whole country can expect for some pretty nice days, with slightly cloudy or partly cloudy weather, but long periods of sunshine,” the meteorologist stated.
In the inner parts of Western Norway and Eastern Norway, temperatures could reach up to 22 degrees.
On the other hand, Northern Norway will likely register slightly lower temperatures, 13-16 degrees at most.
