Signs

A walk around Mosvannet revealed the joggers and sunglasses were out in force. If you have looked at Stavanger council’s flowerbeds recently, you will see the snowdrops have been joined by the crocuses. The Norwegians are beginning to dust off their smiles, but the fine gravel has not yet been removed from the pavements, just in case.

Other parts of the country

The meteorologists listed the top temperature in Bergen today as 6º, whilst Kristiansand had 8º, and Oslo 4º. Longyearbyen reported a marrow-chilling -19º.

The forecast

So what can we, in the west of the country, expect for the coming few days?

“A high-pressure system will dominate southern Scandinavia…Thursday looks as though it will be best, with long periods of sunshine. The temperatures could rise above 10º”, Stig Arild Fagerli, a meteorologist at the Storm Weather Centre told Bergens Tidende (bt.no).

But don’t put away the waterproof clothing yet. According to Fagerli, Monday will see a return to an area of low-pressure, with cloudy weather and a cold north wind.

The seagulls in the picture were unavailable for comment.
