Traffic Reports, Lightning and Thunder |  There will be lightning and thunder this afternoon

Today, Tuesday June 20, the observer may have noticed a rarity – lightning and thunder – listed in Yr in the Mo I Rana weather forecast.

Early this morning, meteorologists have already announced a risk of lightning and thunder in Trøndelag today.

– This is now being extended to include the southern parts of Nordland, including Mo i Rana, says Marek Ratajczak, state meteorologist on duty in Ververslinga, northern Norway, up to Rana Plat.

The Met Office has already reported lightning and thunder in Troms and Finnmark this morning, but the thunderstorms further north are unrelated to Helgeland this afternoon.

– An inland afternoon shower is due for Nordland later today.

– At this point, can you say anything about how much lightning is involved, and especially when thunderstorms are expected to come into Helgeland?

– It’s hard to estimate how much will arrive, you don’t know in advance. A full danger warning applies to southern parts of Trøndelag and Nordland from 1400 to 2200 tonight. It is hard to say when it will hit Nord-Helgeland and Mo i Rana. Also, it’s usually hard to get a good idea of ​​afternoon showers, so it’s not certain that everyone will be where you see the lightning.
