He says he saw many cars without winter tires rolling on flat ground.

– This is very stupid. I was really screwed last week.

Snow continues throughout the day

Snow settled in many places in eastern Norway, Vigen and southern Norway last night. Snow will also continue throughout the day. It informs Meteorologist Ingrid Bentsen on duty.

It will probably continue with rain all day today, and Bentsen says most of it will come as snow because it’s so cold.

Vestfold and Telemark and eastern Norway receive the most rain, he says. Up to 15 cm of snow is expected here.
