Large parts of the country can look forward to a warm and sunny Maay 17 celebration. But in Northern Norway, it may be a good idea to wear a rain jacket over the bunad.

The weather data from the Meteorological Institute show it will be sunny, and temperatures will go up to 15 degrees in Central Norway.

“Several places further south can get up to 20 degrees. In the Oslo area and down in Vestfold og Telemark, the temperature can go up to 20 degrees. It will also be a great day north of Rogaland and up towards Bergen,” on-duty meteorologist Iselin Skjervagen told NTB.

Notodden registered a temperature record on several previous occasions on May 17, and that may happen again this year, according to Skejrvagen. In Innlandet, around Hamar and Lillehammer, a beautiful day is expected, with high temperatures and cloudless skies.

In the south and south of Rogaland, there may be some clouds early in the day, but they could clear up during the day.

Wet and cold in Tromsø

The weather service Yr reports that the residents of Tromsø must prepare for a wet and cold celebration of May 17. 

With temperatures between 2 and 4 degrees and increasing sleet and rain throughout the morning, the conditions will not be ideal.

“The day will start with sleet, and eventually, it will turn to rain. There will be a lot of precipitation, and in addition, a lot of wind.” 

It will be cold and rainy all the way from Bodø and up to the coast of Finnmark.
