The coast of Northwest Norway is the only wet exception to fine weather on Saint John’s Eve in the rest of the country. 

“It actually looks pretty good for large parts of Norway. It fits Saint John’s Eve (Sankthansaften) very well,” on-duty meteorologist Rannveig Eikill said.

However, she noted that there might be a risk of some rain in the inner parts of Eastern Norway in the evening, while Trøndelag will experience more cloudy weather throughout the afternoon.

Warm and nice

But otherwise, those who intend to spend Saint John’s Eve outside can expect good weather.

In Southern and Eastern Norway, the gray weather will disappear by Wednesday. The weather should be pretty nice, with sun and temperatures above 20 degrees in many places. 

At the far end of the coast of Northwestern Norway, there is a possibility of rain.

“Sun in many places in the north”

In Trøndelag, the weather will turn from sunny to cloudy throughout the afternoon on Saint John’s Eve (as is expected in Western Norway). 

The clouds will move into the coastal areas, but the weather in the inner areas of Trøndelag could be better. In Northern Norway, people should mostly expect stay-at-home weather – a little more cloudy in the northern part of Nordland and the southern part of Troms.

“It will be quite lovely in general in Northern Norway and sunny in many places,” Rannveig Eikill told NTB.

She pointed out Southwestern Norway, Southern Norway, and Eastern Norway as the “weather winners” on Saint John’s Eve.

“This is where it looks like it will be mostly sunny. In the northeast, it can be well over 20 degrees in the afternoon,” the meteorologist stated.
