Summer has finally arrived in northern Norway. The heat continues in Finnmark, but in Nordland and eventually in Troms there will be a short break at the weekend.
Thursday, there will be rain in Nordland, and the rain will move towards Troms on Friday. Then temperatures drop to around 11-12 degrees.
“So far the weather has been summer, but now a cool breeze is coming,” says on-the-job meteorologist Ingfield Villa.
As a result, it will rain in Nordland and Troms on Midsummer’s Eve on Friday. There will also be scattered rain on Saturday.
On Sunday, it looks a little better in Nordland, while in Troms it will still rain.
The villa can assure you that the fine weather will not take a long break.
– It’s just the weekend that feels a little better. She says the summer heat will return after the weekend.
It’s still summer in Finnmark
Further north, in Finnmark, they maintain summer weather.
– It will be relatively warm at around 20-22 degrees. Locally, it could definitely get hotter, says Villa.
The weather will be mostly dry over the weekend, but late Sunday evening there could be some rain in western Finnmark.
In the center of the country, there will be some rain on Thursday, especially in Trøndelag and More og Romsdal.
Hordaland and Rogaland also get occasional showers. Things get better here on Midsummer’s Eve, Friday, while Møre, Romsdal and Trøndelag continue to rain.
Diverse weekend in central Norway
On Friday evening, however, the rains start to move away, so Saturday can be a lot of long weather and little sun.
– But there will be a change in cloud cover throughout the weekend, says Villa.
On Sunday afternoon there will also be another round of rain, this time in most places in western Norway.
Temperatures vary across the country. On Friday, it could be around 18 degrees in the far south, but about 13-15 degrees a little further north.
On Saturday and Sunday, the thermometer will likely show 20 degrees and more in most places. The exception is in the far north of Trondelag, where it gets cooler.
It’s always been a little uncertain with temperatures, Villa says, but overall it looks promising.
The sun returns to southern Norway
In large parts of southern Norway, there is a high risk of wildfires, and many municipalities have introduced bans on barbecues and open fires.
Sanktan must therefore be celebrated without the traditional bonfires.
In several places, it has had some rain in recent days, including eastern Norway.
– It is certainly long overdue for many. But starting Thursday, the precipitation will move, and cloud cover will eventually crack, says the meteorologist.
Thus both Thursday and Friday look promising for those who want the sun in eastern Norway and in Agder. It will also be a little warmer. It will probably be around 23-24 degrees. In some places it can reach 26 degrees.
– The whole weekend looks good in terms of sun and high temperatures. Then there will probably be some variable cloud cover, especially on Saturday.
There will be long periods of sunshine, but there may be some afternoon showers in some places. The air also becomes less humid.
– The air is likely to be drier on Thursday when the sun comes out and starts to dry out again.
