The Easter holidays will be characterized by low-pressure-dominated weather, according to the Meteorological Institute. At the same time, there is a significant risk of avalanches in several places in the country.

“There is no stable and fine weather ahead,” meteorologist Marit Berge at the Meteorological Institute told news bureau NTB.

Southern and Eastern Norway will experience the best weather this Easter. Western Norway, Central Norway, and Northern Norway can expect precipitation and wind, the Meteorological Institute noted.

Telemark and Agder get the highest temperatures

“In the east and south, it will be quite mild the first couple of days of Easter, but there will also be fog in some places. It will be a bit varied – not everyone will get an equally good start to the week,” Berge said.

She added that the places that do see some sunshine would experience temperatures of up to 20 degrees on Tuesday.

“Parts of Telemark and Agder will have the highest temperatures. There will also be periods with some precipitation in the southeast during the Easter weekend, but it will not be only stay-at-home weather. 

“At the same time, it looks like there may be some snow this weekend, especially in the north of Eastern Norway. So the ski slope will experience a slight improvement at the end of the week,” she told NTB.

Windy start of Easter for Central Norway

For Hordaland, the Easter week will be wet. A danger warning for precipitation has been sent out for Tuesday. 

But there is hope for some nice weather because the weather will gradually improve over the week.

“There will be precipitation, especially in some areas of Western Norway. The weather will get better throughout the week the further south in Western Norway one looks. Most of the precipitation will occur in the northernmost areas,” she said.

If we move to Møre og Romsdal, Trøndelag, and the southern part of Nordland, it will be a fairly windy start to the Easter week.

“It will blow a lot there. Southwesterly strong gales and periodically small storms. It will be mostly windy out on the coast. There will also be some rainfall during the week. From Wednesday and Thursday, it will also be cooler,” Berge said.

Troms and Finnmark

Troms and Finnmark have a lot of gray weather and precipitation in store. The temperatures will not be very high, and the region will experience some snow showers.

“The south and east will get the best weather. It will not be glorious there either, but in general, it looks best there. They will probably get to see most sunshine,” the meteorologist said.
