In northern Norway, the sun never rises. In the rest of the country it is getting darker and darker. But next week there will be snow in parts of the country, and we may have a slightly sunnier advent season.
Next week’s forecast shows that the winds will shift to the north and we will have low pressure over the Barents Sea.
– Then you can get a good amount of snow in northern and central Norway. StormGeo’s duty meteorologist Lillian Bergheim says it starts Monday with cooler temperatures and precipitation in the form of snow.
You have to be patient
But first we have to go through a week with little rain.
– There is great pressure on western Russia. Bergheim says a ridge of high pressure stretches across all of Scandinavia for the rest of this week.
The direction of the wind is south in large parts of the country. This brings warm air toward us.
– For the vast majority, that means less rain and temperatures that aren’t too cold in some places this week, she says.
– But because of the high pressure, there are very few clouds in the sky. That means there will soon be several degrees below zero when the winds turn north at the beginning of next week, Bergheim explains.
Combined with low pressure over the Barents Sea and precipitation fronts in the west, that means solid snow in parts of the country early next week.
The ski assembly is ready
The ski association is responsible for approximately 2,200 km of ski slopes in Oslomarka and its surroundings. Work on the trails continues throughout the year. Now they are ready for winter this year.
– We’ll obviously be more excited when the first snow comes. Our 18 skiers already started constructing ski runs last week, and will be ready again when more snow arrives, says the Ski Association’s Director of Communications, Trine Rom Giving.
If you don’t want to wait until the next snowfall to test the skis, Giving says the skis hold up well on a sudden climb.
You can test skis in several places. For example, from Frognerseteren to Nordmarkskapellet in Oslo, or from Brovoll in Romeriksåsene.
However, she does ask people to be a little observant.
– It’s still early in the season, so be aware that there might be a thin layer of snow in several places. We always recommend checking the notice Our websites Before you set off on your journey, says tender.
