Although eastern Norway has good driving conditions, roads in northern Norway are characterized by snow, slippery roads and stormy weather.
– We have some difficult driving conditions due to a lot of snow last night, and many closed roads due to the storm, says Rita Bjerkli, transport operator for NTB at Vegtrafiksentralen nord.
Both the E6 above Saltfjellett and the county road 76 above Dosenfjellett have Sunday morning convoy driving.
These roads are closed due to the storm and heavy snow:
- Fylkesvei 7742 Aunfjellet
- Fylkesvei 7862 Kaperdalen
- County Road 7740 Harstad
- County Road 7886 Husøyveien
- Highway 83 Harstad
According to Bjerkli, county road 7570 Beisfjord and county road 862 Bringneset are closed until further notice due to avalanche danger.
There is a yellow warning for snow in the regions of Møre and Romsdal, Vestland and Rogaland and Agder. The danger was over Sunday night.
– Snow has been reported throughout the morning, but tapers off slightly from 2pm. We hope that the roads will improve then, he says.
Bjerkli urges people to take it easy while driving and keep up-to-date on which roads are open.
Further south, the Road Traffic Center in the East can report much better driving conditions.
– No particularly challenging stretches reported. There are slippery roads, but nothing more unusual than in winter, said Tilia K, a transport operator. Madre says.
While they are still driving, he asks people to take it easy.
