It was brilliant sun and fine weather with temperatures above 20 degrees in several places in southern Norway on Saturday. Some Irish tourists in Oslo used the fine weather for a dip.
At 2:00 pm Saturday afternoon, 19.8 degrees was measured at Bygdøy and 21.1 degrees at Bjørnholt in Oslo. Over 20 degrees was also measured in the counties of Akershus, Østfold, Hedmark, Buskerud, Vestfold, Telemark, and in Agder.
In the capital, participants in the Oslo marathon got a glimpse of the summer heat, and the race became a hot affair for the over 23,000 registered runners.
However, the heat was not to the detriment of everyone. Outside of the Opera, Irish tourists Ciara, Trini, Mary and Sinead Wyer took advantage of the fine weather and took a dip in the fjord, although the bathing temperature was probably not summer warm.
On Sunday the weather is more uncertain in many places in southern Norway, where clouds and fog can register.
