Already on Thursday, the sun will be shining again, and the weekend will offer a taste of summer with great weather and up to 25 degrees in large parts of Norway.
“The temperatures this weekend will be between 20 and 25 degrees. Sunny and great weather! We will get a taste of summer,” on-duty meteorologist Martin Granerød at the Meteorological Institute told news bureau NTB.
According to the forecasts, Sunday will be the warmest day, and large parts of the country will be able to enjoy the fine weather.
“Southern and Eastern Norway will get the warmest weather, but if you look at the days before the weekend as well, Western Norway and Central Norway will probably experience the best weather. There, it will be dry and sunny for long periods, even if the temperature is not as high as in the south and east.”
Sleet in the north
Troms and western Finnmark, on the other hand, have to make do with lower temperatures and cloudy weather, and parts of Finnmark may experience sleet on Friday and Saturday.
“The temperature will be around 5-7 degrees. There will also be some precipitation in the form of rain, and in parts of Finnmark, there could be some sleet on Friday or Saturday”.
Get your sunglasses out
There are good opportunities to spend the weekend outdoors, especially in the south and east of Norway.
“This weekend, it is important to take advantage of the nice weather and get out! There are many options – such as trips and outdoor activities – that require both sunscreen and sunglasses,” Granerød said.
There will also be calm wind conditions in the south of the country, with changing breezes and great weather.
“There are great opportunities to take a sea trip, and it is probably not completely impossible to go for the first bath of the year considering that the air temperature will be so high.”
The sea temperature will be at 10–14 degrees, so it is best suited for those who want to cool off.
Taste of summer
The expected 25 degrees and sunny weather are a great contrast to the sleet in Finnmark and the minus degrees that have been reported on Spitsbergen this weekend.
But in the south of the country, summer has not come to stay either.
“It seems that it will only be a whiff of summer and that it will disappear again over the next week. So it is important to make most of the opportunity,” meteorologist Martin Granerød concluded.
