The autumn weather is on its way, and the last days of summer are ebbing away, according to the meteorologists. A rainy weekend is expected in Norway, and temperatures will continue to fall.

“The summer is probably over; it looks like that,” state meteorologist Eldbjørg Moxnes in the Meteorological Institute told NTB.

Recently, there has been a fairly clear weather difference in the country, with warm air in the south and relatively cool gray weather in the north.

Southern Norway has been characterized by warmer weather than usual, with very high summer temperatures this week. Now, it’s over.

This weekend, the high-pressure area will move east, Moxnes noted, adding that people should expect classic September weather.

“There will probably be precipitation all weekend in parts of Southern Norway, but it is uncertain where it will rain most,” she said.

Forest fire danger

Temperatures will fall to around 15 degrees in most places in the lowlands of Southern Norway and Central Norway.

In Rogaland, the weather is currently dry, and a forest fire danger warning about been issued. The warning is valid until Friday afternoon.

“We will see if there will be enough precipitation for the warnings to be removed. It has been dry lately, and some people are longing for some precipitation now. And it will come,” Moxnes said.

Some sun in the north

In Northern Norway, it has been cool lately, with scattered precipitation in several places and a lot of cloudy weather. This weekend, the long-awaited sun will appear in several places.

“From Saturday, there will be a temporary high pressure that will cause calm weather in large parts of Northern Norway,” Moxnes said.

The temperatures will be around ten degrees throughout the weekend.

“It is likely that the Troms area will experience the best weather. There will be a little more precipitation in the inner areas of Nordland, while the Finnmark coast will be characterized by some low pressure,” she said.


According to the meteorologist, when the weekend ends, temperatures are likely to fall further.

“We are heading for cooler and wetter weather, and autumn will probably hit next week,” Moxnes stated.

“We will probably have a little more jacket-weather now, which can be a little unusual for those who have worn a t-shirt lately,” Moxnes added.
