The obvious call: – It’s going to be tough

The sun is slowly starting to warm up, but spring is still waiting for it in eastern Norway. Several places have received precipitation in the form of snow in recent days, and at the weekend, wintry weather swept across western and southern Norway. In the mountains, few people made it, and the National Roads Administration told people in Agder and Telemark to leave their cars.

Changing weather conditions and freezing temperatures are also a risk in the days leading up to the weekend, says meteorologist on duty at the Met Institute Ingrid Bentsen.

Wet and rainy weather marked Oslo and eastern Norway on Tuesday. Alternating hot and cold temperatures could present challenging driving conditions in the days ahead.

– There are plus degrees during the day and minus degrees at night at the moment. This is how it will be in eastern Norway this week. Bentsen says Dagbladet, especially south of Mjøsa, can lead to difficult driving conditions.

– Difficult conditions

The meteorologist describes the weather as “typical spring weather.” In addition, there will be large local differences, which makes it difficult to predict the road conditions in the coming days.

According to the Norwegian Road Administration, the deadline for changing to summer tires is the first Sunday after Easter. Bentsen recommends waiting with a tire change until the variable weather has subsided.

It is impossible to single out one day or one area that stands out as it does now. It says there will be tough road conditions in several places, so keep your winter tires on.

It’s still winter in the north

According to the meteorologist, varying temperatures will affect large parts of eastern Norway, but on the coast, mostly warm weather is expected in the coming days.

On the other hand, the northernmost provinces will have more stable winter weather as well going into the weekend.

– In the north, cold and wintry weather characterizes the coming days. Snow is still expected, Bentsen says, so it will still be winter.
