Christmas weather whitish / News / The Foreigner

Christmas weather whitish. Norway Met Office staff says the Christmas weekend generally looks to be a mixture of rain and snow. Forecaster Arild Mentzoni tells The Foreigner, “Western parts of the country will be rainy, whilst the weather in the east will be pleasant with short dry periods. There will be snow in the mountains above approximately 1,000-1,200 metres.” Whilst it could be windy in the mountains, people in coastal areas, especially in the west, should be prepared for the possibility of blustery weather, however, with winds between 6 to 9 on the Beaufort Scale (strong breeze-strong gale).

Forecaster Arild Mentzoni tells The Foreigner, “Western parts of the country will be rainy, whilst the weather in the east will be pleasant with short dry periods. There will be snow in the mountains above approximately 1,000-1,200 metres.”

Whilst it could be windy in the mountains, people in coastal areas, especially in the west, should be prepared for the possibility of blustery weather, however, with winds between 6 to 9 on the Beaufort Scale (strong breeze-strong gale).

According to Mr Mentzoni, “speeds will generally be between 20 and 40 knots, reaching 50 (storm, 10) for short periods in the south and further north.”

“Temperatures on the west coast will be between +3 and +8C, whilst eastern parts will vary between -5 and +5. Mountain temperatures will be just below or above 0,” he concludes.

Sunday’s prognosis is still variable.
