Road Administration, Weather |  There will be a cold shock next week: the Swedish Road Administration has clear advice for motorists

A foggy start to 2024 is expected. Temperatures will drop in almost the entire country.

Indre Østlandet and Finnmarksvidda are expected to be coldest.

– State meteorologist Haldis Berg tells NTB that cold air masses come from Russia and settle in Scandinavia.

Berge says the lowest temperatures are expected by the middle of the week.

Then it can be mild

In the Oslo area, Thursday and Friday stand out as the coldest days. According to Yr.no, expect a minimum temperature of -22 degrees in Oslo next Friday.

According to Yr, it is expected to be -12 degrees in Trondheim next Thursday, -15 degrees in Tromsø on Tuesday and -15 degrees in Voss next Thursday.

But the cold wave will end soon.

– For Finnmark, there is a trend of slightly lighter winds from Thursday. It will become milder from Friday in southern Norway. There is a very large gap in the forecasts, so it's still very uncertain, Berge stresses.

May be slippery

Christopha Kee-Nilsson, traffic operator at the Eastern Transport Center, tells NTB that the cold wave may become stable. When it's too cold, you can no longer salt the roads. Instead, it is sanded and sprinkled with hot sand.

– Then it gets slippery, especially where you brake at roundabouts and exits and collisions. He says people need to pay attention, watch their speed and keep an extra good distance.

Those intending to drive on hilly roads are advised to check the weather and driving conditions in advance.

– You should have good tires, enough fuel, food and warm clothes in the car. You may end up waiting for a long time, and road closures with long detours.
