Bad news before the joint vacation: – Most people in southern Norway will be disappointed

The social holiday starts next Monday, July 10.

After a hot June, many believe that the summer heat will last until the holidays in July.

For now, the news from meteorologists is encouraging to vacationers in the southern parts of our country.

– For now, most people in southern Norway will be disappointed, Roar Inge Hansen, StormGeo’s meteorologist, tells TV 2.

Have a nice weekend

But – first the good news. Wednesday’s storm in the Netherlands will also reach Norway, but by the time it reaches us, it will bring only rain.

– The next two days will be fine weather north of Trøndelag, while large areas of southern Norway will see rain. In eastern Norway, there may be a risk of thunderstorms, says Hansen.

On the other hand, the weekend is sweet for many.

– Low pressure from the Netherlands will continue to weaken, and large parts of the country can expect both warm and fine weather over the weekend. Inland parts of northern Norway may see some rain, but otherwise it should be fine, he says, and temperatures will reach 25 degrees in warmer parts of the south.

So enjoy the weekend — and, according to the meteorologist, the last real taste of summer may be here for a while.

– The heat in the south will be short-lived, says Hansen.

Repeated low pressure

The forecast for July doesn’t look particularly encouraging for the entire southern part of our country at the moment.

– For now, it looks like the low pressure from Europe will move towards the southern parts of Scandinavia until July. Then there will be some rain. Temperatures will probably be normal, 15-20 degrees warmer than what we saw in June. That’s a little less than most people want on their vacation, he says.

The first low pressure is expected to move in from the British Isles early next week, then it will turn into a blow to blow.

Meteorological Center can also report this.

– Early summer looks like low pressure to the south. We have such a long country that it is often divided into two parts and it looks like it will be this summer as well, says state meteorologist Vipak Thynes.

A winner

The two meteorologists isolate a part of the country which, according to forecasts, will run away victorious in the weather war.

– Northern Norway will have the best weather. There may be periods of clouds in eastern Finnmark. He says it is not certain that temperatures in the north will go above 20 degrees this summer, but there will be good weather with sunshine.

State meteorologist Thyness insists it will actually get too hot in the north to cause problems.

– “Fine summer weather” isn’t good for everyone. He says many places in the north are now on yellow alert for bushfire danger.

A belief

Hansen also likes to stress that predictions for July often don’t pan out.

So the hope is that the forecast is wrong, perhaps unsuccessful.

– Forecasts for summer are more unpredictable than later in the year. “So we’re not going to threaten and cancel the July weekend just yet based on the weather, it could still change,” he says.

Thynes knows this too.

– We often see that the second part of July may have more stable weather, and it may be this year as well. At the same time, he says, if the climate stabilizes in a few years, it could last.

Nevertheless, one event suggests that autumn may be somewhat milder than usual.

– In Norway, we are little affected by the weather phenomenon called El Nino, the wind takes a long time to reach us. What we’re seeing, however, is that there’s a lot of warm water in the North Atlantic, where a lot of wind is moving, which could moderate temperatures in the fall, he says.

– At the same time; We cannot guarantee anything in our field, he says.
