Winter is still clinging to the far north, and large parts of the country will be able to feel spring weather this weekend and next week.
“I can believe that people think it feels like spring is underway,” on-duty meteorologist Tone Christin Thaule at the Meteorological Institute said.
But during the periods of sunny weather and fewer clouds in the south of the country, minus degrees will still be present at night in several places. That is especially true in the interior and higher parts of the country.
In Northern Norway, the winter will last through the weekend. Next week, the temperatures will also mostly stay below zero.
The meteorologists believe that the common denominator for the weather this weekend is that the low-pressure area in the Barents Sea will impact the situation over most of Norway.
In Northern Norway, winds will increase on Friday. There will be sleet and snow, which, when it gets milder, will turn to rain on the coast. The cold weather will continue only in the far east of Finnmark. But at the end of the weekend, the temperatures will drop again, and there will be a stiff and strong gale in exposed places.
“It looks better in the south at the beginning of the weekend. The wind will be calmer, but precipitation from the north will reach Trøndelag and Møre og Romsdal during Friday,” the meteorologist added.
There will also be more clouds in the far north of Eastern Norway and Western Norway, while the weather will be better further south.
On Saturday, the precipitation will pull a little south, but the weather will still be good, with sunny weather in the far south of Western Norway, Eastern, Norway, and Agder.
