Extreme autumn weather to hit Norway / News / The Foreigner

Extreme autumn weather to hit Norway. A leading climate researcher has warned a hurricane system in the Atlantic Ocean could cause extreme weather conditions in Norway this autumn. “We expect heavy rain will fall in a short time when the tail end hits our coast, giving up to 100 millimetres in a day,” Helge Drange at Bergen’s Bjerknes Centre for Climate Research tells The Foreigner. The system is currently on its way eastwards but is expected to change towards the north-east sometime soon.
