At the beginning of the week, snow is expected in Eastern Norway, meteorologists warn. There can be as much as 10 centimeters of snow in the Oslo area.
There has been very little precipitation in Eastern Norway in the last month, and forest fire danger warnings have been issued in several places.
But now, a low-pressure area is on its way into the Skagerrak strait. Eastern Norway will experience snowfall, but there may also be snow in Southern Norway, the newspaper VG writes.
“In Oslo and the areas around the Oslo Fjord, there will be as much as 5-10 centimeters (of snow). North of Hamar, there will be less snow, and in the mountains, there may be a few centimeters, but no more,” on-duty meteorologist Hanne Beate Skattør at the Meteorological Institute told the newspaper.
“Days will be cool, and it will be cold at night, and that applies to the whole country. Thus, it can take time before the snow melts away,” she added.
Easter week is just around the corner, but Skattør says it is still too early to say what the Easter weather will look like.
“But what we see is that for Eastern Norway, there will most likely be little precipitation and relatively stable weather,” she noted.
