Bergen and Oslo have had the same heat record in May: 29.8 degrees. Now the meteorologists wonder if the record will be broken Wednesday and which will strike it first.


Wednesday is going to be one of the warmest days of the year so far, and it is forecasted over 30 degrees in several places.

“Now, Bergen has beat Trondheim in football, but will they beat Oslo in the number of degrees of heat? The record in May is 29.8 degrees both places, but tomorrow we think they reach new heights,” the Meteorologists twist, who equally have made a bet for the race at 30 degrees.

At the end of May last year, a new record was set for the highest maximum temperature in this country. It happened on May 27 in Nedre Eggedal in Sigdal municipality in Buskerud and that was 31.8 degrees.

Despite the fact that some drops of rain fell in some places on Monday night, there is still the highest danger level for forest fires in southern Norway. The most rainfall that fell yesterday in southern Norway was with a poor amount of 14.8 millimeters in Mandal.

The heat lasts this week in southern Norway. Also in Northern Norway they will get a taste of summer – at least on Thursday, but next week may not be as warm.
