Duty meteorologist and Norway’s Met Office Vibeke Thyness tells The Foreigner, “it’s going to be a wintry weekend.”

“In western Norway, there will be snow from about 100 metres (approximately 328 feet) above sea level. Although snowfall will not be substantial, there will be periods of heavy showers with sunshine in between.”

According to her, winds will be northerly at gale force 7 or 8 around the west coast, decreasing gradually tomorrow when they turn westerly.

“Conditions will be similar in eastern parts but with less wind”, she says, “with snow down to approximately 300 metres (about 984 feet). Driving conditions will be difficult away from coastal regions, but Sunday afternoon will be dry.”

A low-pressure system currently over Sweden will move northwards, bringing some showers and falling as rain or hail on Sunday afternoon.

“Mountain winds in Trøndelag and Nordland counties will be gale force 7 or 8 with precipitation, whilst in the northern county of Finnmark they will be easterly.”

She adds that temperatures in the further north will be between +3 and +5C (approximately 37-41F) with not a lot of difference between during the night and day, “but we’ll be lucky if they reach 10C (50F) in the south, and could be below 0 (32F) away from the coast.”
