If you are planning on doing some skiing in Rogaland this week, then conditions will deteriorate from Tuesday afternoon.

Beginning of the week

Although today will see calm winds with some sunny spells and temperatures reaching 15ºC, a new weather-front will bring both rain and strong winds from the south tomorrow. Temperatures are expected to fall to 10ºC.

Pay attention in the mountains

As it is relatively mild, you’ll need to go above 1,000 metres if you would like better snow.

“During the course of the week, the chances of avalanches will be higher”, Jan Nes, a meteorologist from the Storm Weather-centre tells The Foreigner.

The outlook

Strong southerly winds with cloud and rain will dominate the rest of this week. Temperatures will rise again.

And finally

According to the Norwegian Telegram Bureau (NTB), Norway tops the statistics of the country where you are most likely to get your skis stolen. They go on to say that this year will probably be worse because of the financial crisis, and the best preventative measures you can take are to separate them from each other when in the mountains.
